I oversee fundraising in the UK for The Sreepur Village so before my trip I was feeling fairly confident of what to expect and see in the heart of Bangladesh or so I thought I did. What I didn’t expect to see was over 700 smiling faces, children content to play with just a leaf and mothers willing to do the smallest of jobs so that they could have the biggest results, like feed their families.
November is being observed as adoption awareness month. The purpose is to raise awareness and to put the limelight on adoption as a means of building families for children. Throughout the world, every child deserves to be part of a family, however, this is not always the case. This month will not only be raising awareness, but it will also be focusing on the ways adoption touches our lives and how we can make a better life for every child.
