National Adoption Day

Saturday, Nov. 20, 2021

Location: Nationwide

National Adoption Day is a collective effort to raise awareness of the children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States. More than 400 cities nationwide participate in this event to finalize thousands of adoptions of youth previously in foster care. Organizers of this event work with policymakers, practitioners and advocates to finalize adoptions to show children that one day can be life-changing. It is always held during National Adoption Month in November. To learn more about adoption from foster care, see this FAQ from AdoptUSKids. In Arkansas, visit Project Zero or Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime (CALL), which reaches out to churches, including Catholic churches, statewide to help members become foster or adoptive parents.
