November is National Adoption Month, a time to celebrate families that have been created through adoption and raise awareness of the 122,000 children in foster care who are still waiting.
This year’s theme is “Every Conversation Matters,” focusing on the thousands of teenagers and young adults who need unconditional commitment, love, and support, and the importance of talking with them about their permanency plans.
On the National Adoption Month website, you’ll find:
- Stories and videos featuring young people talking about being adopted
- Resources to help youth share their stories and be a voice in their case planning and advocate to improve the child welfare system
- Communications tools to help you spread the word about adoption from foster care
Find out what it is involved in adopting and learn about the children in foster care awaiting families on our website.
