Choosing to adopt a child is a memorable experience that should be cherished. We are pleased to be part of the process that helps families through the adoption process and are excited to offer the following ways to celebrate National Adoption Awareness Month.

• In addition to your child’s birthday, consider celebrating their adoption day or World Adoption Day.

• Attend celebrations for children who were adopted out of foster care.

• If you’ve adopted a child from another culture, celebrate the diversity in your family.

• Celebrate your unique family by taking a family photo on the same day every year to see how much you’re changing and growing.

November 9th is World Adoption Day

Share your love of adoption by drawing a smiley face on the palm of your hand, taking a selfie, and posting to social media with the hashtag #WorldAdoptionDay. Invite others to do the same.

Avoiding Adoption Scams

Don’t let yourself or a loved one become the victim of an adoption scam. Use an experienced adoption attorney from the American Academy of Adoption Attorneys (AAAA). Membership into AAAA is by invitation only and is designed for experts in the U.S. and Canada who have acted to the highest standards in at 50 adoption proceedings that include 10 interstate placements.
