National Adoption Day-November 23, 2013

JOURNAL-CALENDARHaving the experience of a failed domestic adoption and a turbulent international adoption, I know the process takes a monumental toll on our lives.

But there is hope and help, thanks to the  NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY campaign.

NAD_logoNational Adoption Day is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. This annual, one-day event has made the dreams of thousands of children come true by working with policymakers, practitioners and advocates to finalize adoptions and create and celebrate adoptive families.

In total, National Adoption Day helped nearly 44,500 children move from foster care to a forever family. Communities across the county celebrate the Saturday before every Thanksgiving. In 2012, more than 4,500 children were adopted by their forever families during the 13th annual National Adoption Day celebration in almost 400 cities across the United States.

This year the National Adoption Day Coalition expects 4,500 children in foster care to be adopted on National Adoption Day, on November 23, 2013.”
