Saturday, November 23, 2013 is National Adoption Day.
National Adoption Day is a collective effort to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children and teens in the United States foster care system awaiting permanent families.
Ever year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, communities of parents, judges, and child advocates join together to celebrate adoptive families, finalize adoptions, and encourage others to get involved.
This annual, one-day event has made the dreams of thousands of children come true. In total, National Adoption Day helped nearly 44,500 children move from foster care to a forever family.
This year the National Adoption Day Coalition expects 4,500 children in foster care to be adopted on National Adoption Day, on November 23, 2013.
