National Adoption Day

  • Some communities are celebrating National Adoption Day today, while the official day, I believe, is tomorrow — the Saturday before Thanksgiving (for those keeping score at home)
  • DFO: My nephew Josh and his wife, Heather, adopted two, beautiful sisters from Ethiopia a few years ago. They have become treasured members of our family.

Question: Were you or anyone in your family adopted?
