Families Without Borders, in celebration of National Adoption Awareness Month, has kicked off a letter writing campaign. They are collecting letters from anyone touched by Guatemalan adoption (family, friends, community) to send to Sra. Wendy Berger, the First Lady of Guatemala. Some of these letters will also be copied and sent to Ms. Ann Veneman, Executive Director of UNICEF. We want them to hear about the positive effects of intercountry adoption from Guatemala on our lives, those of our children, and our communities. This seems especially important as new, restrictive adoption laws supported by UNICEF continue to be considered in Guatemala.
