November 21, 2009 National Adoption Day
This year marks the 10th anniversary of National Adoption Day, a national day of celebration of adoptive families and an opportunity for courts to open their doors and finalize the adoptions of children from foster care. Since 2000, more than 25,000 children have had their adoptions finalized on National Adoption Day. This year on November 21, families, adoption advocates, policymakers, judges and volunteers will come together and celebrate adoption in communities large and small all across the nation.
okay, so i am not here to scream and rant about my feelings on NAD, all i am saying is "dayum, nationally we make such a big hooplah about how good adoption is and what not, but what the hell about the adoptee? let me propose this to the state: we would not be so angry if yall thought about the adoptee for ONCE! i bet we never cross the minds of law makers. everyone else just thinks they can wipe their hands clean after they did the good deed of "saving a life", too bad its not that simple. all we ask for is some RESPECT that's all. and just for the record, i don't have a problem with adoption, in fact i think its a blessing for those that cannot have children themselves or want to provide a child with a home. i'm definitely all for it but please think of "us" too, this is our life, not yours. i just pray for more rights, equal rights, rights that we deserve as adoptee's. that's all i am saying...
