Today is Blogger Adoption Day. A day set aside for bloggers to tell their own stories about adoption and/or a day to get the word out about adoption in general.
For the record-
-I am not adopted.
-I have never adopted.
-I am not currently adopting.
But I know people who are adopted, who have adopted and who are currently trying to adopt.
One person who is currently trying to adopt a baby girl from Russia, is Denise’s sister Jeanette. I do not personally know Jeanette, but I have been lurking her blog for a long time. And I have been reading Run-Denise-Run since before I became a blogger. If you are not a follower of Denise, I recommend you read her awesome blog…but I really urge you to read this post and also to head over to Jeanette’s blog to read about her plight to adopt a baby girl.
Right now, thanks to a less-than-human-being who sent back her adopted son on a plane BY HIMSELF, Russia put a stop to all adoptions as of today. You can read the story here. And you can help by going here. It takes less than two minutes to fill out and sign the petition. Do it for Denise. Do it for someone you know. Do it because one day you or someone you love might be in Jeanette’s shoes. JUST DO IT!
Do you know anyone who has been adopted or who has adopted?
