Take part in Adoption Month

November 11, 2010

To the editor:

November is National Adoption Month. In Kansas there are more than 5,000 children in foster care and approximately 900 of them are waiting to be adopted. Can you imagine the lives many of these young kids have led? Not one person to feed them, to read to them, to tuck them into bed. Not one person to support their desire to become an artist, a dancer, a soccer player.

As an adopted, lifelong Kansan, one thing I am sure about is the number of unbelievably generous and wonderful people there are in Kansas, many who have raised remarkable kids already or are in the process of doing so. In honor of National Adoption Month, I would like to implore readers out there to make a decision, change a life and outlive yours by considering adoption.

For more information regarding adoption you can go to or call (877) 457-5430. You can also order white ribbons to raise awareness by emailing Thank you for supporting Kansas kids!
