(November is National Adoption Month. Along that vein some of my posts the remainder of this month will focus on adoption.)
I am so excited! Can you tell? Between 31 Days of MissionalLiving and Allume I’ve been sitting on this post for so long and can’t wait to share my joy with you. Jason and I will be hosting a Colombian boy between the age of 10 and 14 during the month of December. We are so excited we can hardly stand it.
We have partnered with an adoption agency, Embraced byGrace, to serve as an advocate to help our Colombian boy find his forever home. There will be twenty-one children in Central Florida and Colorado in the month of December that are adoptable. Here are some quick statistics for you about the world’s adoptable children:
- There are 163 million + orphans worldwide
- Of those 60,000 + are in Colombia
- Of those 9,000 + are adoptable internationally
Colombians are a people that are passionate dreamers. Most of them are hopeful for a peaceful world.
If you’re interested in the learning more about the need for forever families for Colombian children please contact me or Embraced by Grace directly. If you’re local to Central Florida and would like to attend an event we’re hosting to hear more about Colombian adoption please contact me as well.
