NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY 2006 – NOVEMBER 18

National Adoption Day is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the 118,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. For the last six years, National Adoption Day has made the dreams of thousands of children come true by working with courts, judges, attorneys, and advocates to finalize adoptions and find permanent, loving homes for children in foster care.

National Adoption Day is celebrated every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. In 2005, judges, attorneys, adoption professionals, child welfare agencies and advocates in 45 states and the District of Columbia helped to finalize the adoptions of more than 3,300 children from foster care. That year, 227 events were held throughout the country to finalize adoptions and to celebrate all families who adopt.

National Adoption Day 2006 will be held on November 18.
