National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Month:
Giving a child a strong foundation -- a home, a family to love, and a safe place to grow -- is one of life's greatest and most generous gifts. Through adoption, both domestic and international, Americans from across our country have provided secure environments for children who need them, and these families have benefited from the joy an adopted child can bring. Thanks to their nurturing and care, more young people have been able to realize their potential and lead full, happy lives. This year, we celebrate National Adoption Month to recognize adoption as a positive and powerful force in countless American lives, and to encourage the adoption of children from foster care. (President Barack Obama, Presidential Proclamation: National Adoption Month, 1 November 2010).
There is also a blog post and video from the Secretary of State.

Thank you very much Tom ! I do dream of adoption for many many years and can't wait of beeing able to do so. I don't know if it's easier to adopt on the other side of the Atlantic. Here, it is wuite difficult and long.
