Here are my top five favorite activities for celebrating Adoption Awareness Month from Adoptive Families 30 Ways to Celebrate.
1. Coordinate a display of adoption books to commemorate
National Adoption Awareness Month at your child’s school or local library
2, Organize a holiday toy drive for children waiting for
permanent families. Involve your child’s class, team, or Scout group.
3. Spend an afternoon celebrating your child’s heritage
though activities and a meal you prepare as a family. Choose a dish to include
in your holiday menu.
4. As a family, light a candle in honor of your child’s
birth parents. Turn off the lights and hold hands as you watch the flame.
5, Write a thank-you letter to the judge, social worker, or
other adoption professional how helped make your adoption happen.
