It's important to promote and celebrate adoption because adoption is about family for children. Adoption is a wonderful option to consider in the African American community. Adoption gives parents an opportunity to share their lives with a child and experience the joys and blessing of parenting. For a child, adoption means growing up in a happy home with parents who love them and provide opportunities for them to pursue their dreams. For adoptive parents, it's the pride and joy of having a child of their own after years of struggling to start a family. And for birth parents adoption is a choice that allows them to pursue their dreams while giving them the peace of mind that their child is growing up in a stable and nurturing environment. Adoption is a wonderful option.
