November is National Adoption Month. I am a strong believer in adoption and truly wish I could adopt children myself (Hubby does not want more kids and it has to be a family decision). There are so many children in foster care across the country who want and deserve loving families. There are a lot of myths surrounding adoption as well that prevent people from looking into it. If you have ever wanted children, or more children, please think about adoption and check out AdoptUSKids.org to learn more about the many options available.
Today’s infographic is from AdoptUSKids as well to share a little information about the success of adoption and who is adopting and being adopted. Make sure you also follow @AdoptUSKids on Twitter and like them on Facebook as well as watch the #NAM15 for National Adoption Month.
For children in foster care available for adoption, and for whom no adoptive family has been identified, AdoptUSKids.org serves as a tool for connecting their caseworkers with prospective adoptive families. Over the last decade, 20,000 children previously photolisted on the website have been placed with adoptive families. AdoptUSKids is a service of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and Administration for Children and Families.
Have you been a part of the adoption process from any side or ever thought about it?[signoff]
