November is National Adoption Awareness Month. As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, most of us will be enjoying the company of family. But what about those without family? It is estimated by the Congressional Coalition of Adoption that 400,540 children in the United States do not have a permanent and stable family. Of those, 104,000 are eligible for adoption.
Facts to Know Regarding Adoption:
Recently the Today Show on NBC did a special on adoptions, focusing on the families and their efforts to adopt a child. Although there are thousands of children internationally in need of a home, there are equally as many domestically.
Adoption may not be for everyone yet more and more people are considering adoption not to satisfy themselves but as an outreach to care for those without a family. The old term was orphan; the new term is a waiting child. Is there a child waiting for you?
