Last month Americans celebrated November as National Adoption Month. A time for birth parents, adoptive families and adopted children to join together and forge a sense of unity, this event celebrates and raises awareness for adoption agencies and programs.
A Act of Love Adoption Agency understands America’s critical need to place children with adoptive families, including those in foster care. While A Act of Love focuses on working with birth parents and adoptive parents, they support placing children of all ages in caring, loving homes.
National Adoption Month helps provide Americans and adoption agencies with practical information about creating adoption campaigns, including those that are social media based. They believe in helping spread the word about how adoption can change lives, providing firsthand stories of the children and young adults waiting to be adopted.
This year, President Obama announced a proclamation announcing that each child deserves the ability to reach his/her full potential and be adopted into a family. Just as former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton stated, “It takes a village to raise a child,” so too does a successful adoption process. This month helps celebrate and honor the bond that develops and unites both adoptive parents and adoptive children, helping raise them in a safe, secure environment that focuses on love and learning.
As our nation’s government makes a critical call for action, reminding Americans of the important task of raising our nation’s children, adoptive parents are also celebrated, their hard-earned achievements recognized, as many continue to eliminate racial and discriminatory barriers that separate families.
President Obama states that his Administration supports and advocates every child having a loving parent-guided home. Partnering with a number of community and faith-based organizations across the U.S., this national program is designed to work with private, state, local and tribal governments to place children with adoptive families.
The month of November pays tribute and homage to the dedicated adoption professionals who strive to help every child find a loving, permanent home, while celebrating successful adoption stories from around our nation.
Act of Love Adoptions is a proud sponsor of National Adoption Month, supporting the work of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, Children’s Bureau and the Child Welfare Information Gateway. A Act of Love’s mission statement reads: “To Service Children – to help build loving families who share the joy of living and loving together.” They urge birth mothers and adoptive parents to contact them for additional information. They offer chat services, dedicated telephone lines and email contact options.
