November, in addition to being NaBloPoMO, is also National Adoption Awareness Month.
I am very aware of adoption. I've got six(?) cousins who were adopted and an adopted baby sister. And I'm reminded every day because three of the blogs on my sidebar are by adoptive/adopting parents:
Laura at Adventures in Juggling has four daughters by birth and an adopted son. She's had Daniel since he was a tiny baby, and he's now almost five.
Karen at the Naked Ovary became a mom a few months ago when she flew to China to meet her daughter.
And Erin at Jesus Was Not a Republican is in the process of adopting an infant from Guatemala.
