Welcome to Yesvember! The month where we focus on family, and on the importance of saying ‘yes’ to ensuring #ahomeforeverychild that is safe, nurturing and stable.
The origins of Yesvember grew from National Adoption Awareness Week in Australia in 2008. In recent years we have expanded the week to the whole month of November, so that we can raise awareness and focus on permanency and stability for children in homes, and the stories of those who were unable to live with their family of origin, and the journey they have experienced.
One of the ways you and your community, family, workplace, can get involved across the month is by story-telling. We want to hear about what home means to you. What is important. We want to hear stories from those with lived experience – of living in foster care, kinship care, being adopted, searching for family of origin.
Adopt Change is a family community that is growing. Our family members include care leavers, adoptees, carers, parents, professionals, and other caring community members. We invite you to be part of our community and share your experience.
You can share your stories on socials with the following tags, or get in touch via email to let us know you want to get involved at firstname.lastname@example.org
