November is Adoption Awareness Month
Through your gift you contribute to our mission to help people of all abilities achieve happiness and fulfillment.
November is National Adoption Awareness Month. Each year, the Departments of Health and Human Services focus on a particular issue surrounding the topic of child welfare and adoption. This year’s theme is “We Never Outgrow the Need for Family,” a reference to the roughly 85,000 older youth in the foster care system, in need of permanent families.
This is an important message, as older youth adopted from foster care are more likely to finish high school, attend college, or find employment than their counterparts who age out of foster care. Research on positive youth development confirms that children and youth have the ability to overcome traumatic experiences and thrive in adulthood when they are connected to a strong, permanent support system.
Youth ages 15 to 18 make up 5 percent of the foster care population 84,778 kids.
