November is Adoption Awareness month. I'd like to help elevate awareness, so here are a few interesting facts about adoption.
-About 1 million children in the United States live with adoptive parents.
-According to a 1997 survey, 6 in every 10 Americans have had a personal experience with adoption (adoptee, adoptive parent, birth parent).
-Nearly 40% of American adults, or 81.5 million people, have considered adopting a child. If just one in 500 of these adults adopt, all of the 134,000 children in U.S. foster care waiting for adoption would have permanent, loving families (according to the new National Adoption Attitudes Survey).
