Different social workers from around Cape Town came together to celebrate and share views about adoption in South Africa at Common Ground Church in Rondebosch on Friday 26 October. The Adoption Awareness and Celebration event was organised by Abba Adoptions and Social Services based in Bellville. Guest speaker, Dr Lesley Corrie from the Department of Social Development, thanked the organisers for the initiative, saying there is more that needs to be done to raise awareness about adoption. Her words were seconded by Katinka Pieterse of the National Adoption Coalition of South Africa who said the emphasis should be on discovering and dealing with the causes of the low adoption rate in the country, as well as educating social workers and the public.
