Philippine Standard Time:
No matter who you are, no matter how life brought us together, no matter who you grow up to be, anak kita. I love you.
Last year, the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and Inter-country Adoption Board (ICAB) launched an adoption advocacy campaign called “Love Sees Beyond Differences.” The campaign took on the challenge to give a fresh perspective on the issue of adoption to soften, if not diminish, the stigmas as it aims to eradicate the negative impressions that have been created by society. Through it, one by one, adoptive families have been coming out, publicly declaring their love to their children.
