November is National Adoption Month

11-10-2013 3,822 views Adoption 5 Comments

Every year I remind folks that November is National Adoption Month. My wife and I adopted all of our children from South Korea. It was a wonderful experience. If you've ever considered adoption as an option for growing your family, now is a perfect time to reach out and find out more. You can hit Adoption.com as a starting point or feel free to ask me anything.

I watched this video today and thought it was particularly touching. It gives you a good look at how kids view adoption.

    Thanks for putting this out there Ray and for what you have done. I was adopted and have such a great respect for people who do so.
    My wife and I have always had it in the back of our minds to do this but we now have two teenage daughters and im barely hanging on. Plus financially it isn't feasible.

    Thanks again for getting the word out. You and your wife are purely awesome for adopting a few children.

    Thanks for the kind words. Honestly though - we are the lucky ones. The kids are awesome.

    Thanks for the reminder Ray. I'm so thankful for my adoptive parents for giving me such a wonderful childhood and never making me feel like I was anything other than their kid. Adoptive parents are awesome!

    We adopted 2 Russian children 1 1/2 years ago now. I posted a message here about that at that time. It was a transition for all of us at first but now everyone is doing great. Their personalities are beginning to shine and all is good. It's a shame that Russia shut down their adoptions to the U.S. now 2-3 thousand more kids will languish in Russian orphanages each year.

    You are very kind, I respect you :) I am from China, just like the children in this video. Thank you for your warm heart.
