November is National Adoption Month

National Adoption Month is being celebrated now during the month of November 2014!

Adoption is close to our hearts! As parents of an adopted child, we are excited to celebrate National Adoption Month! Our daughter has been home with us for three and a half years now and her bright smile and cute ways have brought so much love into our home that we are bursting at the seams and overflowing with love! She has bonded with her two older brothers and has taught them so much about patience, love, and compassion. Every day is an absolute joy with her and we are so thankful that adoption has touched all of our lives so deeply.

For those that are interested in this topic, we wanted to share some terrific resources about adoption in celebration of National Adoption Month. Below are some links to helpful websites about adoption:

A cheerfully designed story about adoption was published a few years ago and many have enjoyed this sweet story of adoption, love, and inclusion as well as the brightly colored garden scenes in the book. The Forever Garden ~ An Adoption Story was inspired by the author’s two biological children and their acceptance of their adopted baby sister. This sweet story is a nice gift for adopted children and their older siblings or really for any child or family that has experienced the blessings of adoption. The message is simple but one of acceptance and love.

Adoption Tax Credit

The Adoption Tax Credit Working Group is a national collaboration of organizations and individuals that are working together in hopes of saving the current Adoption Tax Credit. I stumbled across this website and think it has some good information related to the Adoption Tax Credit. The Group’s efforts focus on supporting adoption and solid advocacy for continuation of the current adoption tax credit. This adoption tax credit is an important resource for adoptive families as their often are large costs associated with adoption. This tax credit certainly supports families and the children that they adopt and make part of their forever families. If interested, check out their website at the link below which talks about their efforts in advocating for continuation of the current adoption tax credit.
