In honor of this day, I am here to share the resources I’ve compiled from other blog posts of mine, as well as from around the net. Many of these posts feature kids from Sarah’s Covenant Homes, India (SCH), and/or children who are listed either with the adoption funding website Reece’s Rainbow (RR), or available for adoption via Children’s Home Society of Minnesota (CHSM).

For a list of active adoptions I’m currently following (mostly from SCH or RR), check out this link.

Find a list of children who live at Sarah’s Covenant Homes, and are available for international adoption, which I’ve written about before on this blog, at this link.

Find out why I choose to blog about and advocate for adoption, as well as find general adoption resources, at this link.

If you were adopted, or have adopted kids of your own, and you feel comfortable doing so, I urge you to share your story with the world. Your voice deserves to be heard. You have worth. Your life has meaning. You are loved. Your feelings and experiences are important.
