National Social Work Month
March is National Social Work Month. For many, this does not have too much meaning or significance. For us at Heart of Adoptions, Inc., this is a HUGE month. Our Social Workers are the ones that create hundreds of loving and permanent families. Our Social Workers work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist expectant mothers throughout their pregnancy and the weeks after. Our Social Workers spend hours getting to know families that are going through the home study process. They are truly the backbone of our agency.
We also work alongside Social Workers from other areas of the adoption journey to make the process as cohesive as we can for the adoption triad. We work with Social Workers at hospitals, pregnancy clinics, in the DCF system, and other adoption agencies. We all have the same purpose – provide children with a loving, permanent, caring household.
