You all probably know the basic history, but here goes….
In 1976, Governor Michael Dukakis of Massachusetts announced an Adoption Week.
In 1984, President Reagan proclaimed the first National Adoption Week.
And in 1995, President Clinton expanded Adoption Awareness Week to the entire month of November.
We stress that adoption is a bipartisan issue and the initiatives of these leaders from different parties illustrates that.
A good way to begin is by taking a very close look at the National Adoption Month calendar prepared by Gladney’s Outreach team. It is filled with ideas for each day.
Celebrating National Adoption Month with your friends and families and communities is a great way to demonstrate your passion.
