National Adoption Awareness Month Opportunities
November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Below are some ideas on how you and your family can participate:
Donate a book about adoption to your local library.
Read your child a book about adoption and talk about it.
Attend our Adoption Informational Meeting on Nov. 16th at the Bartlett Public Library, 7pm. For more information contact Dina at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Commit to being part of a 5-week “Family Life” small group study called “Considering Adoption”. Groups are being formed. For more info contact Dina at email@example.com.
Donate money to a reputable adoption agency, adoption fund or orphan-care organization.
Contact a foster care agency to find out how you can be a foster parent.
Start an orphan, adoption, and/or foster care ministry at your church.
Rent & view the movie “The Lost and Found Family” with your kids. It is a heartwarming story of a foster family facing real-life issues.
Watch the “Orphan Sunday” Concert on-line LIVE from Nashville with Steven Curtis
Chapman & more. For more information visit www.orphansunday.org.
Buy a “Barnabas Bear” at any Family Christian Bookstore and one will be donated to an orphan, foster child or a child in need all across the U.S. or around the world.
