National Adoption Month
If you didn’t already know, November just happens to be National Adoption Month. In honor of the focus on adoption during this month, I have high hopes of trying to catch up on our sad neglected little blog, particularly updating our readers with news pertaining to our own adoption, answering some questions we have been asked by friends and family as we go through the process, and maybe posting a few reviews of books we have read that might be of interest to some of you.
(And while I am aware that we have very few readers left here given the dearth of posts of late, if you have a question you want me to answer, please leave a comment and I will do my best to spend a post – or an email if you prefer – answering your question!) THANKS!
National Adoption Month seems a good time to say that we are very grateful to our agency, Gladney, for the wonderful work they are doing with us and with so many other families who are pursuing adoption both domestically and internationally. Gladney is also actively championing efforts to provide in-country aid to many of the places in the world where they operate. This is needful, as the reality is that only a very small percent of the 147 million orphans in the world today will actually be adopted into families.
