Adoption Wednesday: November is Adoption Awareness Month

Hey Y'all:

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything to this section but here I am reminding you that November is National Adoption Month.

This month has been set aside by the U.S. Health & Human Services to raise awareness about the adoption of children and youth from foster care. According to the Administration for Children & Families - This year's initiative focuses on building capacity of adoption professionals to recruit and retain parents for the 107,000 children and youth waiting for permanent families in the U.S. foster care system. 

107,000 is A LOT of children without loving families to call their own. Please spread to word to your family and friends. If you are interested in making a change please check out the following sites for additional information.

Until next time...
MUAH!
