Why we need your support
Dear Friends of Adoptions From The Heart,
60% of Americans have a personal connection to adoption and an estimated 1 out of 10 Americans is an adoptee, adoptive parent or birth parent. It’s no wonder adoption has become an increasingly popular theme on tv shows, movies, and in new stories. This past year we saw adoption highlighted on FOX’s Glee, ABC’s Modern Family, and in national news stories surrounding Russian adoptions, however stereotypes and misconceptions continue to be presented. Thanks to passionate donors and supporters like you, AFTH is able to provide the community with reliable adoption education and awareness. Together we can share an authentic view of adoption.
