On Saturday, November 17, a very special celebration is happening in our community. Catholic Charities and the Department of Human Services Swift Adoption Unit will celebrate National Adoption Day. This special event will celebrate the gift of adoption and is to raise awareness of the need to find permanent, loving homes for the thousands of children in foster care currently available for adoption.
Our celebration will include reading a National Adoption Day decree signed by the Governor, prayer offered by Bishop Edward Slattery, music, games and activities for children related to adoption. We invite you to be involved with one day that changes families’ lives forever.
At the heart of National Adoption Day are the birth parents, children and adoptive parents along with community members who help make the day memorable for new forever families. Lawyers, child advocates, judges, and adoption professionals will be invited to participate in celebration and thanked for their time to finalize adoptions, and community volunteers help make the day run smoothly for everyone.
In addition to National Adoption Day, there are many ways to show your support for adoption from foster care. Become a foster parent, mentor children in foster care or volunteer. http://www.okdhs.org/programsandservices/foster/
Everything we do will help reach the goal of finding forever families for all children.
