Heartwarming photos of children and their new parents celebrating National Adoption Day
On National Adoption Day, courts across the country come together to finalize thousands of adoptions of children from foster care.
New parents, Dennis and Katie Whitaker with their 3-year-old son, Soul, are just one of hundreds of new families that made it legal Friday as they celebrated National Adoption Day, 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 40,000 children move from foster care to a forever family. Communities across the county celebrate the Saturday before every Thanksgiving. This year the National Adoption Day Coalition expects 4,500 children in foster care to be adopted on National Adoption Day, on November 17, 2012.
The goals of the group is to help finalize adoptions from foster care in all 50 states, celebrate and honor families who adopt, and raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting for permanent, loving homes.
National Adoption Day organizers also encourage others to adopt children from foster care and foster collaboration among local adoption agencies, courts and advocacy organizations.
