November is almost here

Just around this time of the year I start talking about the month of November - "Adoption Awareness Month" (AAM).

AAM is observed all over the world to recognize the concept of adoption as a credible and an alternative method to expand a family while giving the much needed loving home to to an orphan child. Unfortunately in many societies, adoption is looked upon as a desperate and a last resort. In some societies there is tremendous pressure on one's fertility and those that resort to adoption due to infertility tend not to be open about their adoption.

To recognize and to celebrate adoption, adoption awareness month is created. If you're touched by adoption in someway and if you're interested to spread the message of adoption in your own community, gear up for the month of November to celebrate it.

If you're planning to do something during the month of November, please do share with all of us.
