Can you believe it’s almost November?! There are several reasons why I love November. It is the month in which we pause for a day to give thanks. & It is the time when (if I weren’t living in southern California) I would get to enjoy fall colors and refreshing rain.
But now I have 2 more reasons to love November. On the 8th we celebrate World Adoption Day and this year National Adoption Day is November 21. So basically November is Adoption Month! What a great opportunity to grow in our understanding of orphaned and vulnerable children. And what a great opportunity to talk with our kids about it. I know this adoption journey has opened our kiddos’ eyes just a little bit. Maybe our journey can help your kids too.
Maybe you want to join us in filling the sippy cup. My kids have a blast stealing all my spare change (& even most of my bills) to put in the adoption sippy cup. When it is full they help me count it and we take it to the bank.
We would love to have you join us this month and fill a sippy cup with coins and bills to help support our adoption.
If you are close by I will even supply the sippy cup. If you are far away, I’d say just use any fun cup you have. At the end of the month simply give it back to me. Or, to save on shipping for you out-of-towners, count it up and send us a check.
Even if you don’t have kids, we’d love to have you participate! Every penny truly does count!
