We can’t believe it is almost the end of 2018, but with that said, we also can’t believe how much we have accomplished in 2018!!
NAAM was very much on our minds, this past month. We educated those who might have had misconceptions, regarding their true intentions. It sparked in us an effort we have undertaken to make the world understand that we ADOPTEES DO NOT have our own Civil Rights. Under our United States of Americas' own Declaration of Independence – does not apply. It says, and I partially quote “……..people have unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. We adoptees clearly do not. In the coming months, we will be focusing heavily on this topic, and many others. Thank you to all who have signed our Petition! If you have not signed yet, please sign here. Please continue in helping us spread the word, with using our hashtag and sharing the petition with your loved ones! #adopteesrightsmatter
Also in this coming year, we will be focusing on our legislative actions and continuing to make our voices heard. We want every adoptee to have access to his/her own original birth certificate.
On a little lighter note, we now have a few items for purchase in our Etsy store. Take a look, there are great stocking stuffer items just in time for the holidays!
We hope you will read our monthly news, and come back often to our website, Facebook page, and Instagram. Have a wonderful, joyous holiday season, and we will see you in 2019!
