Children of All Nations Adoption Blog: November 14, 2012

Hello CAN Families,

It is definitely beginning to feel like Fall here in Texas, and I am extremely excited for Thanksgiving next week!  I’m sure you are all looking forward to having the kiddos home for a few days.  What are you most thankful for this year?

Many of our CAN Africa families have received referrals this month!  I know the children and families are all so thankful to be united soon.   If you are interested in learning more about our CAN programs, check out more information here.

I do have excited families beginning their adoption journey ask interesting questions like, “What do you think about renaming my child? How do I make that decision?”  This is completely up to the family.  Sometimes this can depend on how old the child is and it also might depend on how difficult the child’s name sounds in English.  I recently asked this question on our Facebook page, and our families had some wonderful insight on what made them decide to change their child’s name (or not)!
