One of our favorite days of the year is coming up Friday – Adoption Day. It’s our celebration of National Adoption Month.
On this year’s Adoption Day, Nov. 4, we’ll celebrate seven children permanently united with their adoptive families. These children, ages 11 months to 13 years, will leave foster care for their forever homes. If a child can’t safely return to their biological parents, our goal is permanency. We know kids grow best in families.
This day is the culmination of a lot of work for these families and our caseworkers. Happy tears always flow as Judge Ralph Winkler presides over each case, sharing details of how these parents and children found each other.
Please take a few minutes to watch the livestream on our adoption and foster care Facebook page. I promise it will be a most uplifting start to your Friday.
