As we reach nearly 1,000 signatures on our Adoption with Humanity petition after only one week of it being live, and we not even having started the poster campaign, I stand proud.
It is, in fact, both great news to have such support and sad at the same time that it has come to this.
It is also sad that I believe we are unfortunately not getting the support we were hoping for from the government. So far what we have heard from them is mostly talk. And wishy washy attempts to change the mentality of the social workers.
Meantime, we wait to see if another attempt to change attitudes which we will never be able to measure is successful and young lives, thousands of them will hang in the balance.
Hopefully in a few weeks, during National Adoption Week, we will be able to make our voice heard loud and clear. For the children’s sake.
