November Event-in-a-Box: #Shoutyouradoption
November is National Adoption Awareness month, where we celebrate the courageous mothers, open families, and treasured children all impacted by adoption! This month, we want you to bring the message that adoption saves lives to your school!
According to a representative we spoke with from the National Council for Adoption, “There are parents who wait years to adopt an infant. There are always more parents waiting than infants available to adopt.” This statement contradicts what many women believe. Women need to know that if they choose to place their child for adoption, there will be a loving family ready to adopt their precious child. This is a selfless, courageous decision that should be affirmed by her family, friends, and peers.
To help combat the common misconceptions about adoption, your group can spread the truth through hosting a local adoption speaker and sharing the Students for Life #Shoutyouradoption video. Personal testimonies have the profound ability to break through misinformation that students on your campus may have about adoption.
In the #Shoutyouradoption video we meet 3 women: Michelle, an adoptive mother, Amanda, a birthmother who placed her son for adoption, and Lisa who was adopted. Each woman shares their powerful story of how adoption has changed their lives. The video will be available later this week at http://bit.ly/1jOcn0G .
