7 Adoption Goals for 2016

What will you give back to adoption this year?

Sarah M. Baker January 01, 2016

Whether it is losing weight, spending time with family, cleaning out your closet, quitting a bad habit, traveling more, or maybe volunteering; every year we see people making New Year’s resolutions. The common theme is usually somehow bettering oneself. I have a lot of things I’d love to work on this year, and adoption is one of my top areas I can improve upon. One thing I run into a lot in adoption support communities are people who also are looking to improve the role adoption plays in their lives. When I reflected on 2015 and previous years, I started thinking about the good life I owe, in part, to adoption. So what can I give back to adoption?

What goals can we, as members of the adoption community, set for ourselves in 2016?
