November is National Adoption Month!
Over 122,000 children and youth across the country are in foster care, waiting for a forever family. For teenagers at risk of aging out of foster care, it is just as important to secure a permanent sense of belonging.
This year, during National Adoption Month, the U.S. Children’s Bureau urges us to prioritize having conversations with youth waiting for adoption. Every conversation matters because every child has a story, and it is our responsibility to help them on their journey by listening to their perspectives—whether you are a caregiver, mentor, educator, counselor, librarian, or any community member. We can empower youth to find their voice and help them on their path to permanency.
