March is National Social Work Month! This year, the National Association of Social Workers has chosen the theme of “Social Workers: Leaders. Advocates. Champions.” Throughout the month, this campaign will work to educate the public and legislators about the vital role social workers, past and present, have played in improving the well-being of people nationwide.
Within the adoption community, social workers play a vital role in assisting pregnant women considering adoption, birth parents, adoptive parents and adoptees. Throughout the entire adoption process, their role is vast – educator, mentor, friend, advocate and confidante. They work tirelessly in helping to create families, and we are so grateful for them!
In many cases, it is a social worker’s dedication, experience and heart that make an adoption successful. This National Social Work Month, take time to recognize and appreciate the social workers who played a role in your adoption process!
