Thanksgiving National Adoption Day

The National Adoption Day Coalition expects 4,500 children in foster care to be adopted on National Adoption Day today.

National Adoption Day is a united national struggle to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving forever families. This annual, one-day event has made the daydreams of thousands of children come real by working with legislators, specialists and activists to finalize adoptions and create and celebrate adoptive families.

In total, National Adoption Day helped nearly 45,000 children move from foster care to a forever family. Almost 400 cities across the United States celebrate the Saturday before every Thanksgiving as National Adoption Day.
