Adoption Awareness Month
November is recognised as Adoption Awareness Month, raising the profile of the option of adopting a child into your family. Many children are waiting in care and foster homes to be adopted by their forever family.
Adoption is not for the faint hearted and is a long journey but creates a home and a family for children who, through no fault of their own, don’t have any other choice.
