November Is National Adoption Month!

This year’s theme, “We Never Outgrow the Need for Family” shines a spotlight on the thousands of older youth who are at risk of aging out of foster care without the support of a family. View and share an illustration of the many times in life that we need the support of family we created as part of our National Adoption Month partnership with the US Children’s Bureau. Find additional resources for professionals at the National Adoption Month website.
