Why not celebrate National Adoption Awareness Month?

Here’s a thoughtful and personal perspective from someone with firsthand experience of adoption who is thriving and courageous to share her story with us. 🙏

As an adoptee, everyone asks Stephanie Drenka how she’ll be celebrating National Adoption Awareness Month. Even the name irks her.

“… to me, this month feels like being at a wild party and losing something in the crowd. You try calling for help – asking others to join in your search – but the music and festivities drown out your voice. Your interruption is not only unwanted; it is unacknowledged. This party is not for you.”
