5 Ways to Celebrate National Adoption Day

5 ways to celebrate

National Adoption Day is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. This annual, one-day event has made the dreams of thousands of children come true by working with policymakers, practitioners and advocates to finalize adoptions and create and celebrate adoptive families.

National Adoption Day has helped nearly 40,000 children move from foster care to a Forever Family. Communities across the country celebrate the Saturday before Thanksgiving. This year the National Adoption Day Coalition expects 4,500 children in foster care to be adopted on National Adoption Day on November 21, 2015.

Here are 5 ways to celebrate National Adoption Day:

  1. Create a Life Book telling the story of how your family came to be.
  2. Fall is the best time to go outside. Play in the leaves with your family and discuss how each family tree is different.
  3. Ask the leader at your place of worship to mention adoption in his/her services throughout the month.
  4. Read a book as a family about some famous person who was adopted.
  5. Talk to others about the needs of children in foster care for permanent homes and loving families.
