Joint Council seeking adoption stories for National Adoption Awareness Month

See also

November is National Adoption Awareness Month, and the Joint Council on International Children’s Services plans to celebrate this event by raising awareness for children who need permanent families as well as those who have benefitted from the permanency of family life through adoption. From now through October 15, 2010, the Joint Council is seeking stories from adoption professionals, families, and others who are familiar with the plight of children in need of a permanent family home. Every day throughout the month of November these stories will be featured on the Council’s website in an effort to help educate and raise awareness about the many children who have already benefitted, and those who still can benefit, from the many blessings and advantages of finding permanent homes and families through adoption.

For submission purposes, please e-mail stories to Jason Cohn at Stories may be a three-minute video or essays of 750 words or less. Please be sure to include photos of the author and the child. If the child highlighted is currently living outside of family care, a pseudonym for the child is encouraged and photos should be used only with great discretion regarding the child’s safety.
