NaAdMo was First

Everywhere you read, everywhere you blog you see it–NaNoWriMo. That is short for National Novel Writing Month. Since this is the first year that I have heard about it, I Googled it and found that it began in 1999, according to Wikipedia.

Before NaNoWriMo, NaAdMo claimed November. What is NaAdMo? It is National Adoption Month. It had its beginnings in 1976, but claimed November as its month of celebration and promotion in 1995. Okay, so NaAdMo is my own abbreviation. I figured if someone could blog about NaNoWriMo, then I could create one for adoption.

If you have adopted a child, are considering adopting a child, or are the family or friends of someone who has adopted a child, what are you doing to celebrate National Adoption Month? Please leave a comment below and let us know. It is always fun to hear how others celebrate.

Four and half years ago we adopted our daughter from Thailand. Earlier this year I began writing a book about our nearly decade long journey of waiting on God for our daughter. My book is now officially in production with CrossBooks Christian Publishing Company, a division of LifeWay.

You can read more about my book, see previews as they are posted, and find out ahead of time when it will be available by clicking here– http://nineyearpregnancy.wordpress.com. And be sure to check out other posts on this blog about adoption–https://delanasworld.wordpress.com/category/adoption/.
