According to a recent Harris Poll on behalf of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, 66% of Americans say they are only somewhat or not at all familiar with adoption. Spence-Chapin hopes to change that.
With the Adoption Awareness Video Project, we are bringing together the voices of well-known faces to talk about their own personal connections to adoption in self-recorded videos, helping to increase understanding about adoption by those not connected to adoption while at the same time ensuring that everyone in the adoption constellation knows that there is a supportive commnity out there for them. The videos we are creating we will be sharing widely through social media, and we hope you will, too!
See some of our videos below and how you can participate in this important video project!
