Congratulations Kathy and Jason!!

I have to send out a big congratulations to my friends, Kathy and Jason. They signed up with us on Oct. 16th. They got their application in to one of our agencies on Nov. 5th. They were matched the very next day, and their son was born last Wed. How is that for fast?? ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so excited for them and so thankful to have been a part of their journey! Congrats:)

I also wanted to pass on another company who is celebrating National Adoption Month.
Shop at any Barnes & Noble nationwide November 27, 28, and 29th and B&N will donate up to 20% of proceeds to help find forever families for foster children. Use the code 416859 at checkout.
What a great way to support adoption! ๐Ÿ™‚

A few of our agencies are posting new situations very soon, so I’ll post an update ASAP! ๐Ÿ™‚

November is National Adoption Month!!

In November, the President makes a Proclamation declaring November National Adoption Month. I read this today:

A PROCLAMATION

All children deserve a safe, loving family to protect and care for them. In America, thousands of young people are waiting for that opportunity. During National Adoption Month, we honor those families that have strengthened America through adoption, and we recommit to reducing the number of children awaiting adoption into loving families.

America is a country rich in resources and filled with countless caring men and women who hope to adopt. These individuals come from all walks of life, united in their commitment to love a child who is in need of the protective arms of a parent. We must do more to ensure that adoption is a viable option for them. By continually opening up the doors to adoption, and supporting full equality in adoption laws for all American families, we allow more children to find the permanent homes they yearn for and deserve.

I love it! Something we can all support politically and who can say that these days?? ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Adoption month to all of those touched by adoption, all of those waiting to adopt, the amazing first parents who love so much, and to those who are made parents through adoption!
– Romans 8:14-17, โ€œFor all who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received the spirit of adoption as sons by which we cry out, โ€˜ABBA, Fatherโ€™. The Spirit Himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God and if children heirs also, heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.โ€
