November 23rd is National Adoption Day: What You Can Do

National Adoption Day is about adoption from foster care. I’m currently 8 months into adopting my daughter, Clementine, from foster care, and it’s surreal to imagine that we might be 100% legal mom and child for next year’s National Adoption Day. Held every Saturday before Thanksgiving, National Adoption Day’s goals include finalizing adoptions from foster care in all 50 states, raising awareness of the more than 100,000 foster children waiting for permanent families, encouraging people to adopt from foster care, and building collaboration among local adoption agencies, courts, and advocacy organizations.

This year, Rachel Crow from The X Factor will serve as the spokesperson for National Adoption Day. Rachel was born to a mom addicted to drugs. After living in what her adoptive mom describes as a “crack house,” she was placed in foster care at the age of 6 months. One year later, her foster parents became her adoptive parents.
