In my town, there is a sizable adoption community. There is a wonderful adoption group that meets regularly to offer support, exchange experiences and address concerns in regard to adoption issues as they arise in the neighborhood. The school district graciously offered a meeting space and sent a representative to be a liaison. Several school issues were addressed.
And one of the members arranged with the town library to acquire a wonderful film and offer to show it with a discussion period saved for the end. I want to promote the film. It's not easy to watch. It's not a pretty picture. But, it is important to see and GET this version of the adoption experience. I highly recommend it. It is not for the faint of heart. It is only for people who are ready to look at the tough issues for all involved,
