November is National Adoption Awareness Month and there are some really great things going on around here. The one I have gone to many times is the all day experience called, "Let's Talk Adoption." This year it's at Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ on November 7. Here's the link to the program in order to see if you are interested. I highly recommend it.
Let's Talk Adoption Conference It's sponsored by Concerned Persons for Adoption, a wonderful organization dedicated to offering educational and resource information for those who wish to or who already have adopted. Workshops are offered on everything about adoption from the beginning of the process, through the early years and on through the whole life-cycle (with the myriad of issues in between). There is a wonderful keynote speaker. I always well up with tears at their presentations, as they talk with such personal vulnerability about their own experiences. Anyone in the area who is considering adoption as a way to grow their family, as well as others further on in their adoption journey would benefit from attending.
