So I'm feeling like a bit of a slacker considering we're already into the second week of National Adoption Month and I haven't posted ONCE! To appease my guilt, I did contribute (err. . . copy and paste that is) this item and this item from Adoption.com and Adoptive Families Magazine to celebrate and advocate for adoption. And my family walked in our local Annual Adoption Walk With Me 5k over the weekend- very inspiring!
I'm looking forward to catching up on my blog reading [eventually] and checking out all of the great guest posts, giveaways, and spotlights some of you adoption advocate bloggin' overachievers (you know who you are) have posted this month. I have actually started a couple of posts of my own, but most of my time and energy has been spent focusing on George and making as smooth a transition as possible for him. Which, come to think of it, seems like a very appropriate thing to do considering the history and intent of National Adoption Month was to raise awareness of the need for loving and permanent homes for children. The "loving" aspect I can control but as a foster parent the "permanent" part of the equation is totally out of my hands!
Stay tuned . . . more posts to come.
