I was born on the 15th of December. I am one of several December Birthdays here at Heart of Adoptions. We have December babies among our attorneys, caseworkers, support staff, and at different offices.
I’m often asked what it’s like to have my Birthday so close to Christmas. In truth, it has its ups and downs.
December is a time for gift giving. It’s a time for remembering what is important and thanking those in our life that we value.
It is a unique time for Heart of Adoptions because we are coming straight out of National Adoption Month. And in November, we have already done so much to celebrate what we value.
Here are some examples of just a few things we do during November. We cover our building in hearts with the names of our adopted kiddos.
In the last three weeks, I have high-fived a stormtrooper, been startled by a six-foot-tall thunder bug and had my face painted. What carnival have I been frequenting you ask, oh, just your local county courthouses.
On three separate Fridays, I have been in three county courthouses celebrating Adoption Day ceremonies.
