Today is National Adoption Day 2010: What Have we Learned?
This post will be short; I don't have a lot to say (imagine that!) but what I think people could use today to focus on would be:
- What are the rights and needs of children, mothers, and families? How can we serve their needs best?
- You do not need to erase a person's past and issue altered birth documentation to give them a home. Let's revisit this issue and restore access to adult adoptees.
- Who do you know that has been impacted in some way by adoption? Do you make assumptions about them or have you talked to them personally? Find out what's important to them. Become an ally.
