National Adoption Month

So, November is National Adoption Month. I've been posting on FB different links and ways to participate in this month as an advocate for adoption. I will continue to do that here, too, for the rest of the month.

Today - I ask anyone who reads this to please send up a prayer for all the children who need homes, for whatever reason. To think that we have 143 million children in the world (i'll double-check that, but not right this second) that are orphans or in need of a family is just beyond terrible.

God bless the children. Please move our hearts to help them wherever, however, whenever we can.

For me, I didn't adopt to save a child. But I do realize that there are so many children in need, and I can see how that would be a reason to adopt. But even if you sponsor a child or an adoption agency... those things are helpful, too! The link and picture to An Orphan's Wish is one such agency that you can sponsor an individual child with special needs. And...make a difference.



  1. If I had known that this was National Adoption Month I would have done a post on the subject matter and linked it to your post. It's still early in the month, however, and a message of this importance is worth mentioning year round.

    I think by now I've given a strong indication of just how passionate I am about this. Obviously you are too.

  2. Hey, I think you should go for it! :) It isn't too late!

    Yes, and I think it is something good to be passionate about. I absolutely am.
