November is National Adoption Month and is celebrated across the United States to increase awareness of the 118,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving homes and to recognize those who step forward to bring these children into their families. On Nov. 19, National Adoption Day events will be held in cities throughout Arizona that will include finalizing the adoptions of many children leaving foster care. These and similar events in all 50 states will give children the chance to live with stable and loving families. They will also encourage other dedicated individuals to make a powerful difference in the life of a child. Source. The Arizona Republic, azcentral.com.
