National Adoption Month Kicks Off


National Adoption Month is here.  Throughout this month many activities and celebrations will happen in our communities that will highlight and celebrate the successful adoptions of many children.  A somewhat unique aspect of these celebrations will include those families that have chosen to adopt children internationally.


Each year many Americans are choosing to adopt a child internationally.  In 2010 over 11,058 children were adopted internationally and over 2,500 of those children came from Ethiopia.  In fact just five years ago there were only a little over 400 adoptions from Ethiopia.  Ten years ago it was barely over 90.


Our Ethiopian Adoption Story blog will spend November celebrating the international side of National Adoption Month.  We will focus on those families that adopted from Ethiopia and share their stories.  In addition we will share with our readers our efforts to advocate for a better adoption process that is both beneficial to the adopted child and the adopting family.


We hope you will join us in this month long celebration.  We hope that our story will inspire you to consider an adoption for your family.  Adoption is our chance to make a real difference in the world by helping and loving one child.


Happy National Adoption Month to everyone.
