ChildNet, a Community-Based Care lead agency that protects abused, abandoned and neglected children in the community, in partnership with other child welfare agencies and local stakeholders, will celebrate National Adoption Month with a ceremonial National Adoption Day on Saturday, November 17 at the Broward County Courthouse, during which more than 60 children will be adopted.
- Currently, there are more than 501 children in Broward County in need of adoption into a loving home.
- For more than two decades, National Adoption Month has been celebrated across the country. ChildNet is proud to participate as a collaborative partner in community programs, events and activities during the month of November that raise awareness for children and youth in foster care who are waiting for permanent families.
- There are more than 110,000 children in U.S. foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. Since 2000, National Adoption Day events have moved nearly 65,000 foster children into the arms of a forever family by working closely with policymakers, practitioners and advocates to finalize adoptions and to create and celebrate adoptive families.
- Over the last year, 348 children were adopted in Broward County. ChildNet and its community partners hope to increase that number this year!
