Expand your family.

Today is National Adoption Day, "a collective national effort to raise awareness of the 119,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families." If you are considering adoption as a way to expand your family and share your love, here are some ways you can begin the process:

* Read family stories to learn how adoption has been a blessing.

* Get more information on adoption. Resources include a Beginner's Guide to Adoption, a fact sheet, links and more.

* Find National Adoption Day events in your area. Events include adoption awareness classes, celebrations and more.

* Find the information you need if you are considering placing your child for adoption, are a member of a birth family, are an adoptive parent, or are an adopted person.

* Consider being a foster parent. Foster parents give love, care and support to over 500,000 children in the US.

Since this is National Adoption Month (EspaƱol), now is a great time to consider expanding your family and sharing your love with a child.

"By choice, we have become a family, first in our hearts, and finally in breath and being. Great expectations are good; great experiences are better." - Richard Fischer, adoptive parent

As an adoptee I maybe a wee bit prejudice,but I am definitely Pro Life,though I support Pro Choice.How confusing is that?I just think that we should spend more on educating the benefits of adoption and give the mother to be more support.
