National Adoption Month in November Highlights Need for Adoptive Families

By Sheryl Rentz on November 29, 2012

National Adoption Month has been celebrated in the month of November with events, campaigns, and activities to help build awareness of adoption and adoption-related issues. The specific focus this November is the adoption of children who are currently in foster care, and the focus was to find loving, permanent homes for foster children awaiting adoption. An Examiner.com news report states that presently there are more than 100,000 children in the foster care system in the U.S. waiting for permanent families, with 3,000 children in Philadelphia alone in need of permanent homes.

To celebrate National Adoption Month, a free event was held on November 19 in Philadelphia intended to be a public awareness campaign to underscore the need for children who need adoptive families. The event was a collaboration between the Philadelphia-based National Adoption Center and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, and the event featured games, entertainment, interactive activities, and resource information for prospective families.

A central principle of the National Adoption Center is that “there are no unwanted children, just unfound families.” During post-adoption, adoptive families can utilize such services as case management, crisis intervention, and parent support groups, which can help a new family make a smooth transition. As part of National Adoption Month, National Adoption Day was celebrated on November 17, which is a national effort to raise awareness of the foster care children in need of their “forever” home.

For couples who have made the decision to adopt or who may be considering adopting a child, seeking advice and guidance from Pennsylvania adoption attorney Sheryl R. Rentz would be well advised and can help you get the resources and answers you need regarding the adoption process. Giving a child a loving home is one of the most rewarding things a person or couple can do, but it is essential to know the legal ins and outs to ensure the complicated process is properly completed.
