I didn't expect the parallels that I saw tonight between The Crown's Aberfan episode and adoption. But they were there.. and they were deep.
There's a common myth in our society that adoption is a Plan B for life. On the contrary, it's Plan A for our life and countless others.
Sometimes adoption is painful. Sometimes its in the post-adoption phase. Today, it was in the pre-adoptive phase. We said goodbye today.
Adoption is scary. So many questions, so many concerns. All of the what-ifs. For the child, it could mean leaving the only culture or family they've ever known.
November is National Adoption Month or Adoption Awareness Month, depending on your official source for national months. Adoption is the backbone of our family and we’re proud adoption advocates.
