November is National Adoption Awareness Month! There are currently over 100,000 waiting kids in the US for adoption and who knows what the number is overseas. So many children out there who need a home! A year ago this week, my hubby and I were approved to adopt and listed as a waiting family for adoption. It’s a very special month to me for that very reason! The process of adoption can feel very drawn out at times, but the end result is very rewarding! Less then a few weeks after we were approved, we brought home our sweet baby boy. Since adopting, I have had many friends ask me about the adoption process. It blesses my heart every time I get to tell a friend about our personal experience and help them on their journey! Please reach out to me if you have questions as I am always happy to answer!
Hallmark is all about family and sharing in family celebrations! I love that they have two ornaments that are perfect for the adoptive families in your life. Their Hallmark Keepsake Better Together ornament is so adorable as it is not only dated, but has a spot for you to put a family photo. Year after year of putting that on the tree is sure to stir memories that are precious.
They also offer a Hallmark Keepsake Forever Family Adoption ornament. With the dated 2016 ribbon and sweet words “Meant to be” and “Forever Family” on enclosed in two hearts, it’s sure to be a treasured gift for years to come!
I have partnered with Hallmark to give one readers the Forever Family ornament! To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post with your adoption story…or your friends story. This giveaway will end on Nov. 30th at 5PM CST. If the story is too long for the comments, feel free to email it to me at mycrazysavings @gmail.com! I am looking forward to reading your stories!
