The Ad Council just released three new adoption PSAs — “Outdoors“, “Teacher” and “Vacation” — all with the theme “You don’t have to be perfect to be a perfect parent.”
Check them out, they’re really cute.
They remind me of my all time favorite adoption PSA, also known as “the hamster one.” These new PSAs are part of the Ad Council’s ongoing campaign with the US Department of Health and Human Services and AdoptUSKids.
I’ve learned that over 21,000 kids have been adopted as a result of this “perfect” parent campaign and I’m not surprised — one of the greatest barriers I find to would-be adoptive parents is fear of being found not good enough during the application process. And the people fearing rejection are some of the most competent, loving, capable and resourceful individuals I know. That’s why these PSAs hit a chord. Hopefully, watching them today will help push some readers to the next step in the adoption process!
