December Eve: the last day of National Adoption Month
You’ve probably noticed the surge of adoption info swirling around the world wide web this month like sweet reunion stories, adoption-related events and editorials. (FYI, November is National Adoption Month - in case you missed that memo.) That said, here is our BraveLove recap from National Adoption Month...
It’s National Adoption Day!
TODAY is officially National Adoption Day, which means we (and other agencies and organizations around the country) are collectively celebrating nearly 40,000 children move from foster care to forever families.

BraveLove shares a few finds from the week
Did you hear about David Correy, the X Factor contestant, who’s adopted? The judges asked what makes him different from the other contestants, and he said “I’m adopted so I feel like this opportunity will reconnect me with my birth mother if she hears my voice.” He also went on to say how much he loves his family, but he wants to know where he comes from and if his birth mother sings. You can watch his story here.
The Launch Party was a success!
What a night! (Don’t worry - better pics are on their way.) So we were expecting around 200 or so guests. Well, the people kept coming, the lines started to form and before long BraveLove guests were literally standing outside on the sidewalk to come into the Marquee Grill.
