Awareness Campaign Trail For All

Campaign trails are well travelled throughout November.  The candidates make promises and words flourish about countless issues across the country.  Along the campaign trail,  the discussions rarely turn to issues related to adoption.  While medical insurance is currently a hot topic,  adoption issues the involve medical advocacy and family health history are not frequently debated much less mentioned during campaign speeches.

The word adoption appears through the calendar pages during one month every year.  Aside from that,  adoption more than likely does not cross the minds of the majority of Americans for the rest of the year.  There is only one month to educate and increase awareness about adoption.  Non-identifying info, advocacy and legislation are among the words found in adoption jargon.  These are more than most people can absorb during the month of November.

The days of the month of November are short and the days of autumn fly by quickly. Everyone with an interst in adoption and their reunions had a personal debt to educate about adoption.  Adoption Awareness Month should be a time of Show And Tell.  The adoption stories hold the promise of a blessing for those who receive them. It is the magic of awareness.

What have you done to tell people about being an adoptee and reunions that you have had with your biological family?
