November is National Adoption month!

The original idea for a recognized adoption awareness week came from Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis in 1976, when he declared that his state would celebrate adoption awareness for seven days. Later, in 1984, President Reagan proclaimed the first National Adoption Week, which created a domino effect in around the country. As more and more states began to hold events for National Adoption Week, it became clear that simply a week would not suffice. In 1995, President Clinton made November National Adoption Month, and we’ve been celebrating it ever since! The main message behind National Adoption Month is awareness: hundreds of thousands of children spend their days in the foster care system, waiting for their forever families to find them. November is the time to bring this issue to light, especially right before the holidays, when so many children are in need of love and care. Source: History of National Adoption Month
