National Adoption Day
November 17th is a monumental day for children as it is also National Adoption Day! In the United States, there are over 100,000 children in foster care that are in need of a loving family. This annual event works to raise awareness, encourage prospective parents to adopt, and to find forever homes for foster children. National Adoption Day hosts events that run across the nation as well as Puerto Rico and Guam to ensure children are placed in loving homes. Whether you can conceive or not, adoption is a wonderful avenue for parents looking to expand their family and give the gift of love to a child that so desperately needs it.
For those of you thinking of adoption or have adopted, thank you! The gift of love and family is so very precious. To learn more or share your story, visit National Adoption Day.
