Sending the Right Message

When the media spotlights a story when one or a few times adoption goes wrong it tends to send out the wrong message to many of those who have not adopted because all they are seeing is the few times that it has turned out bad. It is so important to remember all the many thousands of times it has turned out wonderful and to not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

I would encourage anyone who has adopted to send in their stories to this blog, their local papers, anywhere public where we can send encouraging messages to those who may question whether adoption is normally a great thing. Here is an article where one family did just that.

spread the word so many children will continue to get to loving homes they so deserve.
