November is a time to raise and promote awareness for adoption. If you are looking for ideas to celebrate adoption during National Adoption Month, you can visit the Adoption STAR Twitter page, where we are offering a new way to celebrate adoption every day in November (no need to have a Twitter account to view all of the tweets.)
Adoption STAR will also be involved in many great events throughout the rest of National Adoption Month to help promote adoption awareness.
Some of these events include:
This Thursday, November 10, STAR will be hosting its Hair and Skin Care Workshop at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Amherst (6320 Main St. Williamsville) from 6:00 pm – 8 pm. The class is designed specifically for families who have adopted trans-racially or are considering doing so. It will be taught by hair and skin care professionals and will educate you in the special hair and skin care necessary for Black and Bi-Racial children.
