30 Ways to Celebrate Adoption in 30 Days

"Each year, the President of the United States issues a proclamation that sets aside November as National Adoption Month. In addition to the Presidential proclamation, many State governors also issue proclamations in an effort to raise awareness of the need for loving and permanent homes for children in their states.

National Adoption Awareness Month is a great time for you to get involved in the effort to make a difference in the lives of children from all across the country. The National Adoption Awareness Month 30 Days of Activities Calendar is a great way to promote adoption in your home as well as in your community. Take some time this November to get out and encourage the citizens in your community to become involved."
