Raise awareness for yourself and others during the month of November (and every month) with the following activities and events...






Many Ways to Celebrate Adoption Awareness Month…

  • Hand It Out... Ask your community school/church/club/rec centre/coffee shop if you can place our agency brochures on a bulletin board or in the lobby. We can provide you with cards and brochures upon request.
  • Share It... Organize a presentation on adoption or share your own story at your work/school/community centre or in the media.  Nothing promotes adoption like real family experience!
  • Write It... Send a letter to the editor of a local newspaper or the producer of a radio program/TV talk show and encourage them to cover a story on adoption. Or write to thank them for an adoption story they’ve already done.
  • Publish It... Share a few words or a short testimony about your adoption journey to be posted on our website. Write a perspective or adoption article and submit it as a guest columnist on our blog.

And more....

  • Read a book about adoption and write a book review to share with other families formed through adoption or who are considering adoption as an option.
  • Have a family movie night and watch a movie that portrays adoption in a positive light. 
  • Create a scrapbook with your child to honour the special way your family was formed.
  • Spend an afternoon celebrating your child’s heritage – food, activities, crafts, etc.
  • As a family, light a candle in honour of your child’s birthparents.  And as a family share some quality time validating each person for all the things you love about them.
  • Attend the Waiting and Adoptive Parents group.
  • Make a donation in your child’s or his/her birthmother’s name to a charitable organization (such as Adoption Options).
