IAdoption Advocacy Month
Premiere Magazine November. It is a month filled with traditions, a season where we often pause and reflect on the blessings we have in this life. For Caleigh Romine, those reflections are often tied to a personal passion -- adoption. Fittingly,
November is also recognized as National Adoption Month. Romine graduated from Arkansas State University with a Master’s Degree in Social Work and went on to foster, then adopt two children. She quickly became a spokesperson of sorts for the plight of the orphan right here in Northeast Arkansas.
From getting local businesses involved in sponsoring children at Christmas, connecting post-adoptive families to counseling resources, there always seemed to be something on her to-do list that revolved around the task of advocating for the orphan. This advocacy work took a turn in 2017 when she met a mother who asked Romine to adopt her child. She was not in a position to adopt again, but was able to connect the mother with a friend who was interested in growing her family by adoption. Through this process, she began to look into what it would mean to formalize an adoption advocacy program.
