Adoption Awareness Australia
www.facebook.com www.facebook.com

/showurl.php?url=3058 November is celebrated in many countries as Adoption Month.
Lets raise awareness about the children needing adoptive families.

November is celebrated in many countries as Adoption Month. Every child deserves to grow up in a loving and supportive family environment. In Australia, thousands of children languish in foster care while government departments procrastinate about their future. Around the world - millions of children are abandoned, relinquished or orphaned. The lucky ones find their way into an orphanage, whilst others live on the streets struggling to survive. Adoption is a positive option for many of these children. Adoption Awareness Australia aims to raise awareness of the needs of children both in Australia and overseas in need of adoptive families. Adoption Awareness Australia supports the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Hague Convention in respect of Intercountry Adoption. Adoption Awareness Australia supports the need to reform the adoption process in Australia so that children stuck in the foster care system and in overseas orphanages instead of growing up in institutions. We hope that you will help us spread the word.

The Curry Club - A Network for Adoptive Fathers
www.facebook.com www.facebook.com

/showurl.php?url=3061 The Curry Club is a network for Australian men to explore issues of inter-country adoption, culture and fatherhood whilst simultaneously enjoying a bloody good curry. It is open to prospective and adoptive fathers. Events are currently limited to SA.

Becoming an adoptive father of a child born overseas is a big decision and it is one that is truly life changing. Sadly there is little pre and post adoption support available that is tailored to meet the needs of such men. I mean what red blooded Aussie male really wants to be trapped in a training room discussing their emotions with a social worker and a bunch of strangers? Terrified at the prospect of such cruel and unusual punishment, a small group of brave fathers began an epic quest to find a better way! In their tireless research into adoptive fatherhood and overseas adoption, these intrepid pioneers stumbled across two chance discoveries.

1) Curry (or spicy food) is part of the cuisine of all of the major countries from which Australian's currently adopt, &
2) 97% of Australian men love a bloody good curry. (Source: The Byemoore Curry Institute 2006.)

It was a Eureka moment and with that the Curry Club was born!
The Curry Club is a chance for men to explore issues of inter-country adoption, culture and fatherhood whilst simultaneously enjoying a bloody good curry. Members of the Curry Club are encouraged to cook curries from the birth country of their adopted child(ren) and to share these with other fathers and prospective fathers.

Don't Forget the Children: Russian Adoption Advocacy
www.facebook.com www.facebook.com
This is an advocacy site to foster good relations and healthy adoption experiences between the United States and Russia. There is too much negative press about a few isolated incidents that distort the truth and because governments are predisposed to over react to these few situations, they change regulations to make it more difficult and near impossible for thousands of wonderful families to proceed with adoption. This advocacy site is now accepting membership who share our convictions that "We must not forget the children" who need happy and healthy family environments where they can grow and be nurtured in love. We are a majority - you have a story to share - and we will be sharing ours. Let's make a difference! It is time.
