As an adoptive father, each day I experience the wonder. As someone who has worked in this field for 12 years, I have witnessed countless stories where the trajectory of a child has changed, such that he or she now has “a future and a hope.”
At Both Ends Believing, we are playing a central role in changing the trajectory of tens of thousands of children as we empower government social workers to make well-informed, timely decisions in placing children in permanent, loving families.
Each day matters and each child matters. I want to encourage a mindset in all of us that every month should be National Adoption Month. As November comes to a close and our attention turns to Christmas, let’s remember children who are alone and will have no Christmas. Then as the New Year dawns full of hope for us and our families, let’s reflect on those children who have no hope. On MLK Day, ask yourself: Do these children have big dreams? Probably not; they just want to survive. You get the idea.
Start with this November and fan the flame of adoption all year long!
