National Adoption Month

November 23, 2019, is designated as National Adoption Day and November is designated as National Adoption Month.

On Saturday, November 23rd, courthouses around the country were open for a special one-day adoption finalization event.

Who Benefits? 

Older youth, in particular, are less likely to be adopted. The November National Adoption Month is focused on the importance of stable family connections for older foster care children. As we head into the season of thankfulness, it is important to remember there are approximately 60,000 children in foster care in California, and more than 100,000 kids waiting to be adopted throughout the United States. We are grateful to those adoption and foster care professionals who do their utmost to ensure that each child has the opportunity to grow up in a home that best fits their situation. Caring parents and professionals make significant impacts on the lives and happiness of these children.
