November is National Adoption Month

Birthmother letter.pubSix years ago I helped a couple develop a brochure to help them adopt a baby. It was a successful adoption, and Thomas is now 6 years old. Today I now work with couples, and several adoption agencies, and specialize in adoption brochure design; creating beautiful, custom designed adoption brochures to tell a couple’s specific story. Adoptionbrochure.com creates visual adoption profiles that are successfully recognized by birth mothers looking for couples to adopt their newborn. We have assisted in the success of many adoptions.

November is National Adoption Month, a time to raise awareness about the urgent need for adoptive families for babies, children and youth in foster care. This year, the Children’s Bureau’s goal for this initiative has a new focus: Help States harness the power of social media to recruit and retain parents for the over 104,000* children and youth in foster care waiting for permanent families.

IMG_1202_smFoster Care is a vital step to many adoptions for older children. Alena Strickland has spent the last 25 years caring for critically ill and developmentally delayed children from the foster care system. She believes she was called by God based on James 1:27 that states, “Religion that God accepts as faultless is to take care of widows and orphans in their need.” Alena lives this verse. Alena has fostered over 170 children. I have had the great pleasure of knowing Alena and her family for many years. She is truly blessed with a gift and calling from God.
