Yesterday was November 1, the beginning of National Adoption Month. As the link says, it’s designed to promote the adoption of children who are currently in foster care (children = ages 0 – 18) and give them stable, permanent homes when reunification with their original family is not possible.
I’ve never done a lot with National Adoption Month on my last blog, and I’m not going to start now. There are, however, some groups who are:
Heather at Open Adoption Bloggers is sponsoring an interview project this month. Keep an eye out for a link to the posts.
M at Sheeps Eating Me is reposting some of her favorite posts every day this month. Including the ever-popular “Jackass Adoption Comments” series.
Even a fiber related link…
The Red Scarf project is to make the transition from foster care to the “real world” a little easier for young adults. They’re accepting knitted or crocheted scarves from now until December 15, 2011.
From the comments this week:
Happy Adoption Awareness Month! As a fellow adoption advocate we thought you would enjoy taking part in Open Portrait, a blog that is painting a portrait of open adoption through photos, videos, and quotes. We would love you to participate and help spread the word! http://www.openportrait.tumblr.com
We are a very ordinary family and are probably not what they’re looking for in a portrait. But you might be, or know someone who would be exactly what they need. Check it out.
I’ve been working on some ornaments for a Ravelry swap at the end of this month too. Once they get sent off, I’ll put up some pictures.
