November is National Adoption Month



November is national adoption month. If you've ever considered adopting or fostering a child, think about doing it now. If you know an adopted person or there is an adopted person in your family, celebrate! Talk to friends about your experiences. Find community. Read up on current adoption issues and legislation.

Whoever you are or whatever your connection to adoption, there are lots of resources out there for you. One that I find particularly helpful right now is the American Adoption Congress: http://americanadoptioncongress.org/. It's a national organization, with resources for adopting, searching, reuniting, state laws, etc. They host at least one conference per year, and actively continue the dialogue about adoption, from the perspectives of all members of the triad. Membership is discounted during November. Check it out.
