November is National Adoption Month!
National Adoption Day is officially recognized on the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Many cities in Nebraska will be celebrating on November 22 or November 15 in Lincoln and in Scottsbluff and North Platte on December 6.
National Adoption Day is an effort to raise awareness of the children in foster care waiting for permanent, loving families. Thank you to all of the families that opened their hearts and homes and provided a forever family for a child/children.
