Call for adoption stories, essays, and poems for theÂ Winter issue of our Mothers in Action newsletter.
Since November is National AdoptionÂ Month, also known asÂ National Adoption Awareness (or asÂ we call it Bewareness) Month, Origins-USA would like your take on this “celebration.”
National Adoption Month began in 1976 to increase adoptions of kids from foster care.Â Â Each year the presidentÂ proclaims November as National Adoption Month. President Obama’s proclamation is below.
Of course, no sooner thanÂ NAM was established, than the adoption industry subverted it to its own ends. SeeÂ the Bethany Christian Services websiteÂ http://www.bethany.org/A55798/bethanyWWW.nsf/0/5C847B00CDCF11CC8525745E004F4F3B
This is the same Bethany that was featured in The Nation (“Shotgun Adoption” www.Origins-USA.org )
Please send us your essay, poems, whatever by November 16 to newsletter@Origins-USA.org.
