In November we celebrate National Adoption Awareness month at LifeLong Adoptions as well as being active proponents of the adoption cause.
Through the lens of our adoptive children, how do they see our love? On any given day there are 415,000 children that are without homes and are provided for by social services alone in the United States. We are afforded every freedom to define our own individual perspective in this country, but is there any room to deny those children their voice?If we are truly empathizing with them, are we listening to their longing for permanence?
Institutional love of a child based on creed, race, or gender identity is consequential to a progressive society. Instead, we should consider their basic needs for forever homes and the security of a family to their overall development. In November we ignore conventions and celebrate the home, structure, opportunities, provisions and permanence that households of all variations can afford those 415,000 children. #ElevateAdoption
