Miami-Dade County Adoption Day/Miami-Dade Courts Facebook page
The 11th Judicial Circuit participated in National Adoption Day November 17 at the Miami Children’s Museum.
National Adoption Day is a collective, grassroots effort to raise awareness of the more than 113,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States. A coalition of national partners — the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, Alliance for Children’s Rights and Children’s Action Network — launched National Adoption Day in 1999.
During this annual event, courts and organizations in more than 400 communities across the country opened their doors to finalize and celebrate adoptions from foster care.
National Adoption Day has recognized more than 75,000 children moving from foster care to a permanent family since its inception and takes place every November
