    What is National Adoption Day?

    Held on November 17, 2012, National Adoption Day aims to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care. As we recognize National Adoption Day, we invite you to learn more about adoption and how it affects thousands of teenagers and children placed in foster homes by exploring our Center and its articles on stories related to adoption.

    Over 250,000 children a year enter the U.S. foster care system. While more than half of foster care children are returned to their parents, the rest are placed with foster families or in group facilities. Spreading awareness about the thousands of children in need of a family or family environment is one of the key missions of AdoptUSKids.
