November is Adoption Awareness Month

I wanted to post something regarding adoption awareness month for two reasons.
One I am adopted. I was adopted at 1 week old in 1960. I was born to a teen age mother and she stayed with her aunt and the dr. made the arrangments. My adoptive parents had lost a child to sugar diabetes at 2 years old in 1958. Their dr. notified them when he discovered my birth mother was looking for an adoptive family

My daughter is adopted also. She was my foster child, born cocaine dependent. My first husband (he died of cancer when she was 3) and I fostered her for 2 years then adopted her when she was free. She is now 14 and a wonderful, beautiful, funny child. She has problems in school but none we cannot overcome. She is awesome at soccer, she breeds and shows rabbits, and is active in 4-H. She is a blessing from God that I thank Him for each and every day.

Please consider opening your heart and home to a child, the blessings it brings you are awesome!
