Honoring Adoption at School

When Frank and I decided to take the 30 days in November and try to raise awareness for adoption, we didn't really think of including our whole school-1st-12th grade in the project. However, this has gotten a bit larger than we intended and this week, our school will be celebrating adoption. This video is one I created to introduce the idea of the need for adoption in Taiwan.

Throughout the week, the students will be decorating child cut outs to recognize the individuality of each child abandoned-each one is unique and special. At the end of the week, the "children" will be linked together in an art installation on our campus, complete with statistics to go with the visual. In addition, we will have a bulletin board dedicated to those who have been impacted by adoption-whether they've adopted, been adopted, or have friends/family involved with adoption in some way. It is my hope that these students and teachers walk away from this focused week at our school with more awareness regarding the importance, value and beauty of adoption.
