It is not too late to participate in Adoption Awareness Month, which has been designated to occur in the month of November. You may think it is not a topic relevant to your life but that is not true. No matter your situation, there are several ways you can help to support adoption - even of people you don't know!
Share it....Share your own story as nothing promotes adoption like real family experience.
Write it....Send a letter to the editor of a local newspaper or the producer of a radio program/ TV talk show and encourage them to cover a story on adoption.
Publish it....Share a few words or a short testimony about your adoption journey or your perspective on adoption.
Use it....Use and share Positive Adoption Language. (more on this on an upcoming post…)
Email it.... Put a short message about Adoption Awareness Month in your email signature. Use your social media networks to spread the love.
Screen it.....Watch a positive adoption related video and share with your family or friends.
Read it.....Read a book about adoption and write a book review to share with others considering adoption as an option.
And more... Have a family movie night and watch a movie that portrays adoption in a positive light...Create a scrapbook with your child to honour the special way your family was formed...
Spend an afternoon celebrating your child’s heritage...As a family share some quality time validating each person for all the things you love about them.
Shout out to @adoptionsask for the great ideas!
