More Than I Could Ask For – World Adoption Day

World Adoption Day

In celebration of the upcoming 1st ever World Adoption Day on November 9th, Doog News, as an Ambassador for this exciting event, has invited friends who are connected to adoption in a variety of different ways to submit writings about adoption. Between now and November 9th we're excited to post these stories to give some insight into what life is like when it involves adoption. We encourage you to follow along and read the various postings whether it's about a family who has adopted a child, to someone who was adopted, to the perspective of an adoption counsellor, and even a family who has decided to adopt and now waits and wonders if and when they'll be parents. In all of these stories there is one common factor: love. Please join us on this celebratory journey as we lead up to World Adoption Day.

If you’ve heard of the song “Loving You Tonight” then you’ve heard of Andrew Allen. He was born in Canada, adopted at birth and is now a successful singer/songwriter having scored three Top 10 Hits in Canada. He’s very proud to be adopted and is also an Ambassador for World Adoption Day. He shares his story of adoption, meeting his birth family, and how his adoptive family and birth family are now one big happy gang. Check out what he has to say about his world of adoption in the video above.
