It's National Adoption Awareness Month

New Jersey residents may have a lot to look forward to this month. The holiday season is beginning, and many people can hardly wait to spend time with friends and family. In addition to traditional festivities that return each year at this time, people should be made aware that November is also National Adoption Awareness Month. 

It is estimated that, in New Jersey alone, there are well over 10,000 children, ranging in age from infant to teen, who may benefit from adoption. These children are often shuffled between foster homes and run the risk of never having a place to truly call home. Many adoption advocates warn that children who do not have a family to love and care for them may suffer later in life. 

Perhaps an individual or family has considered adoption but find the process a bit daunting. Though there is certainly a lot of information to consider, an adoption can change the life of a child forever. Often, relatives may not be aware they could be eligible to adopt a family member, or a couple may not know how to find a child in need of a loving home. National Adoption Awareness Month aims to provide tools and outreach to communities across the nation and educate the public on the need for adoptive families. 

If an individual or family is considering adoption, one of the first steps they may want to take is to contact a knowledgeable attorney. An attorney may be well-versed in the laws surrounding adoption and may be able to direct interested parties as to how to navigate the legal steps necessary to finalize an adoption. If people are interested in adoption, there is no need to be deterred by the seemingly complicated process, and having an experienced attorney on one's side can help ensure the process goes smoothly.
