Celebration for National Adoption Awareness month

Adoption is a wonderful way to have a family. November is National Adoption Awareness month, which focuses on the needs of children in foster care to have a family and a forever home. For families in New Jersey and around the country, adopting a child from foster care is a rewarding way to have children. One out-of-state county recently celebrated the month by having an event to celebrate the adoptions of over 150 children.

The event took place in the county commissioners' chamber. There were so many families in attendance that it may be moved to a larger venue for future celebrations. Each family in turn was presented with an adoption certificate to commemorate the event. A pastor who delivered an invocation and keynote speech shared his own happy adoption story of his two sons.

One parent in attendance has been the stepfather to three girls for five years, but is now officially their father. He and his daughters say they are delighted to take this new step as a family. Another couple, who is unable to have biological children, talked about adopting their three children through foster care. Their youngest child's adoption was recently finalized and they say it is a dream come true.

Families are made from love, and nowhere is that more obvious than in adoptive families. The process of adoption can be daunting, but the end result is worth the effort. Families here in New Jersey considering this path may want to involve an attorney who has experience in this area of family law. It might be the most beautiful decision they ever make.
