November is Adoption Awareness Month and the Independent Adoption Center is excited to participate in honoring all parties involved in adoption, but we need your help! In celebration of open adoption we want to know what it has made you more aware of, whether you are an adoptee, adoptive parent or birth parent. This is the month to be aware of how adoption has affected your life and how it continues to create families for so many. If you’d like to participate, please post a comment along with the completed statement “Open adoption has made me more aware of…..”. You may also participate on our facebook page or on twitter using the hashtag #iamaware. We’ll take the best ones and add them to a photo album on facebook. It’s time to spread the awareness this month, don’t miss out on sharing it with others!
National Adoption Day was started as an effort to raise awareness for children in foster care in need of a family, and has grown as a celebration of all families who have experienced adoption in some way. This year National Adoption Day is on November 17th – to find events check out www.nationaladoptionday.org.
