November is National Adoption Awareness Month

Did you know that November is recognized as National Adoption Awareness Month?

 We believe that all adoption-related issues are important, although the specific focus of this month is the adoption of children currently in foster care.

Activities and celebrations are kicked off with a Presidential Proclamation, and while efforts made at the national level certainly help build awareness of adoption, participation in local programs, events, and activities by those of us with a direct connection to adoption can often be the most effective way to promote positive perceptions, debunk the myths, and draw attention to the tens of thousands of children in foster care who wait and hope for permanent families.

If you have an interest in fostering a child or supporting adoptive families for children in the foster care system in Indiana, let us know if we can act as a resource to you.

Working with foster families to ensure permanency for kids is one of the most rewarding parts of our practice.     In this season of Thanksgiving, we are grateful for the foster families who open their homes and hearts to waiting children.

Thank you.
