Attention Adopt Parents! Come join us for an evening of information sharing from Native Child and Family Services of Toronto and Adopt4life on November 22, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm!
Save the date! Each province across Ontario will be hosting a themed event. More information to come.
Adoptive parents and families need support. We need to be able to access these supports in the moment. Professionals can help in many ways but they go home at night. We are living this.
Rita L. Soronen, President & CEO, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption gives an overview of the challenges in the adoption world in creating permanency for children and youth, and how each of us can make a difference. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is a national, nonprofit public charity dedicated exclusively to finding permanent homes and loving families for the more than 150,000 children waiting in North America’s foster care systems.
Reflecting on why I do what I do—I think of my daughter. It was her experience and allowing me to share in her joy of knowing that she isn’t the only one, that I now get it: Adopt4Life is for our children as much as it is for us parents. Adopt4Life is about community! This is my “why”!
So there we stood in the dessert heat of Mecca (the holiest religious site in Islam) in May of 2012 performing Umrah (smaller pilgrimage than the Hajj). Standing in front of the Kaaba (the most sacred site in Islam), our arms were stretched and hands cupped in front of us with our faces buried in our hands in prayer. We prayed to Allah (God Almighty), that we were here to make intentions to adopt children, and if this was meant for us, to please help and guide us on this journey.
