Have a glance on social media on November 9th and you may see many pictures of celebrities, instagrammers and other influencers sporting smiley faces on their hands. The reason? It’s World Adoption Day!
The idea is that you draw a smiley face on your hand, take a photo of it and share it with the world. In the 6 years since the first #WorldAdoptionDay, over 60,000 people from around the globe, representing all seven continents, have taken part in the celebration.
The organizers want to let adoptees know that they are not alone: “Every adoption journey is different, but most stories often start from a painful place where a mother and a child are tragically separated. On #WorldAdoptionDay, you might be reconciling your own adoption experience, whether you’re an adoptee, expectant mom, adoptive parent, a sibling of an adoptee or in the waiting period, but you are not alone.”
People are also being encouraged to share their story and celebrate families brought together through adoption.
Confidential DNA relationship testing
For some adoptees, a DNA relationship test later in life offers a way to find, or confirm, a biological relationship with their birth parents. AlphaBiolabs offers a range of DNA testing services including maternity, paternity and extended family DNA tests. All of these DNA relationship testing kits can be ordered direct from AlphaBiolabs Website and mailed to an address of your choice.
Confidentiality is maintained throughout the process. From the moment the testing order is placed, strict procedures are followed to ensure complete security. Results or personal information are not shared with any third parties, and all data is password-protected. The DNA test results are discussed only with those who are entitled to know, and even then, the correct password and/or response to security questions is required.
AlphaBiolabs has been rated 5 out of 5 stars by customers on dnatestingchoice.com – an independent website that collects genuine reviews from real DNA test customers.
