Celebrating National Adoption Month
Adoption is one of the most selfless and loving acts a family can choose to take on. A child is brought not only in someone’s care and protection but also personally selected and invited by the parents to be a part of the family.
Chosen. Seen. Loved.
We celebrate the families that have chosen this selfless act and spread awareness of the thousands remaining in foster care who pray and hope for a forever home.
Adoption can be life-changing in the best possible way for a child that may have been bounced around the foster care system. As they get older, the possibility of being adopted grows slimmer. More than half of adoptions out of the foster care system are with children five years old or younger. Uncertainty builds as they come closer to aging out of the system.
The Administration for Children and Families has released the webinar below to share how professionals can be the keys to open doors for youth. Learn how you can make small steps toward change!
We have worked plenty of cases to know that our national foster care system is exhausted. Our children and youth deserve better.
We encourage everyone to learn more about the foster care system and help play a role in making children’s lives better. You do not have to foster or adopt to change a child’s life. Taking steps to learn about the policies, laws, and systems that affect children and youth currently in foster care can help make a difference.
Where things falter, advocate for better.
