CUB Retreat 2017

National Adoption Awareness Month (NAAM) was originated to bring attention to children in state care who could be adopted. An official description and timeline are available at the Child Welfare Gateway website.

Like all things related to adoption, however, private entrepreneurs – adoption attorneys, adoption facilitators, and adoption agency owners and executives – saw it as an opportunity to hawk their services.

Support Groups

Here's What is Happening Now on Facebook:

CUB provides support for all family members separated by adoption; resources to help prevent unnecessary family separations; education about the life-long impact on all who are affected by adoption; and advocates for fair and ethical adoption laws, policies, and practices.

A temporary lack of resources – not a lack of love – is often the reason birthparents surrender their parental rights. If parents are unable to raise their children, they should have a say in who will. Denying loving parents knowledge of their children, even when those children become adults, is a cruel and unnecessary punishment that causes suffering for all. A severing of parental rights does not cut off a parent’s love.
