National Adoption Month
National Adoption Day Needs to be More Than a P.R. Stunt

Every year, I spend Columbus Day in afforded leisure, attire myself ridiculously on Halloween, and nonchalantly prepare for the excitement of Christmas.
More Than Just a Day: Holding All the Pieces of Adoption
On November 21st, our country celebrated National Adoption Day. Every year, on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, courts across the country finalize the adoptions of children from foster care. Since this tradition began in 2000, 54,000 children have been adopted from foster care on National Adoption Day.
