Happy National Adoption Month!

November has finally arrived, which means it’s once again National Adoption Month! Many of our readers already know how special National Adoption Month is to members of the adoption triad – but if you’re new to the world of adoption, you can start learning about it right here.

Each year, National Adoption Month, sponsored by the Children’s Bureau, spreads adoption awareness, honors adoptive families and highlights newborns and children who are still waiting for permanent homes. Adoption Month is a great time for adoptive families, adopted children and birth parents to share their stories and celebrate the role adoption has played in their lives.

Happy National Adoption Day!

Today is National Adoption Day, which is a great opportunity to shine the spotlight on adoption in your family.

In 2014 alone, 4,500 children had their adoptions finalized on National Adoption Day; since its inception in 2000, over 50,000 children have been helped through this holiday.
