Each November, since Gerald Ford was president, has been National Adoption Awareness Month. It begins Monday, November 1, with a Presidential Proclamation from President Obama, and while efforts made at the national level certainly build awareness, participation in your local events and even starting community events by those of us with a direct connection to adoption can often be the most effective way to promote positive perceptions, debunk myths, and draw attention to ADOPTION!
Celebrate National Adoption Awareness Month with a calendar found here:
Get out in your community and support - or start - some fun activities promoting adoption! And I find it quite fitting that Adoption Awareness Month coincides with the month we celebrate Thanksgiving. I'm so thankful for adoption in my life...aren't you?
