Celebrating National Adoption Month in Florida

If you are a birth mother going through an unexpected, unplanned, or unwanted pregnancy, you may be considering adoption. If you do find yourself thinking about Florida adoption, you may have heard of the worldwide phenomenon known as National Adoption Month. However, since this concept is relatively new and has only been around for the past couple of decades, it is not fully common knowledge yet. Therefore, you may find yourself unsure of what it is, when it is, or even why it is. Well, Adoption Choices of Florida has your back and is here to answer all of those questions and more. 

National Adoption Month is a month dedicated to bringing awareness and education to the public on the topic of adoption. First officially established by President Bill Clinton in 1995, National Adoption Month takes place every year in November. The month is a celebration of the adoption process, and many federal, state, and local adoption agencies come together to help educate their communities with events, special programs, and various activities in order to raise awareness of and bring attention to the subject of adoption as well as the children all over the country who are currently in foster care and looking for families. The month also aims to make use of several different resources and systems to connect more children with new, permanent families than at any other time of the year. This initiative is led by several different organizations that work together to promote the adoption of thousands of infants, children, and teens each year. 

Why Do We Have a National Adoption Month? 

After learning a little more about the origin of the month, you may find yourself wondering for what purpose this commemoration was created. Why do we need a national month-long event dedicated to adoption? This is simple; every year, there are many children who need permanent, loving families to adopt them. And every year, countless numbers of these children go without said families. A month dedicated to finding perfect family matches for children placed for adoption, as well as dedicated to honoring the families who have already brought an adopted child into their homes, is something very noble. More than anything, this celebration was created to shine a nationally-recognized spotlight on adoption. This focused attention on the subject will serve to recognize the children waiting for permanent homes, spread awareness of the situation, and encourage communities and individuals to get involved however they can.
