Being an advocate for adoption, sometimes I hear... "Why can't more people adopt kids here at home? Why do people go overseas?"
Well... I am passionate about finding homes for ALL children. Sometimes international adoption is a better fit for families... sometimes domestic adoption is a better fit. Once people start digging, they usually discover which one their heart is ready for-- sometimes it's both!
Lately, I've been thinking about adoption. I just spoke about it at a recent fundraiser, my Korean sister was in town for a visit, and I just found out that some work I did concerning foster children received an Emmy nomination. It's a tremendous honor to be up for a Mid-America Emmy this year, but really, I'm more happy that the work has helped children find loving families and permanent homes.
So here's my question. What can you do for children?
A lot of people think they have to adopt. NO. That's not true! There are so many ways you can help.
