November is National Adoption month. The week of thanksgiving was established as National Adoption Week in 1976 by then-President Gerald Ford. In 1995, President Bill Clinton expanded the period of observance from one week in November to the entire month. A number of states lawmakers have also made separate declarations for their state and around the country, celebrations, public education events and news stories have focused their attention on adoption.
