National Adoption Month 2015 Recap

Did you know that our biggest adoption month each year is National Adoption Month (November)?

On November 18th, 2015 (National Adoption Day) alone, we had six children (all girls) finalize their adoptions!  We had one additional adoption at the end of November, making a total of seven total children and teens adopted during the month of November. 

In 2015, 32 children and teens throughout Polk, Hardee and Highlands counties were either matched with a family, or finalized their adoption with a family they were matched with!

Ashley Beckwith was a constant source of information and support during the two years and five months of our adoption journey. My husband and I completed the Adoption 101 (now MAPS) class in 2012. Ashley stayed in touch and available to us through the adoption newsletter and checking in via email. She was present at match meetings and adoption events. We finalized our adoption a month ago. I am finally a mother and I feel so thankful and blessed to have been able to work with Ashley through this process. Ashley, you are so dedicated and positive. It was a pleasure to work with you.
