In honor of National Adoption Month & World Adoption Day, and my position as a Representative of Kangaroo House, I wanted to open this post to all of those who have adopted, have been adopted, or have fostered a child. I would LOVE to hear your adoption story and would be honored if you shared on my blog. Please comment in the comment section below if you have a story you would like to share!
November is National Adoption Month, and although I myself have not adopted a child, it is a dream of mine to one day bring a child into our home to love as if they were birthed by me. If you follow my Pinterest, you might have seen my Adopt board and wonder why I have one. Hubby and I have tossed this idea around for over a year now and I hope that the day will come that we can give back to a child in need.
Before I go on further, I just want to share these facts with you from NationalAdoptionDay .org:
MORE than 100,000 children in the US alone, are waiting for an adoptive family to love and care for them, and most of these little beings will wait on average, 4 YEARS to find a home. I can’t even write this without tears filling my eyes. I hurt for those babies who will not have the love and support that I give my boys every single day. I am not asking you to adopt a child on a whim, I’m not even asking for you to reconsider the decision that it may not be for you but, I am asking that you join me and Kangaroo House this Sunday in celebrating those who have found homes and spreading awareness for those who have not.
This Sunday, November 9th is the first EVER World Adoption Day. Snap a pic of the Smiley drawn on your hand and #worldadoptionday and #KHsmileyface.
