During November, CHS and the broader community acknowledge those whose lives have been impacted by adoption and those who facilitate the process. This month helps spread awareness and encourages all to learn more about adoption.
National Adoption Month celebrates the families who have grown through adoption. It also recognizes the journey of the many children who are still waiting for their destined families. It further highlights the thousands of children nationwide in need of adoption, and how easy it is to make a difference even if you cannot adopt.
“During National Adoption Month, we hope you will take the opportunity to spread the word about the more than 12,000 children in foster care here in North Carolina who so longingly hope for a permanent, safe, and loving family of their own, and offer them your support,” said Shannon Enoch, CHS Executive Director of Programs.
Children’s Home Society strives for a permanent, safe, and loving family situation for children through reunification with their families of origin, and when that is not possible, through adoption. “We view adoption as a lifetime commitment, and we commit to our children and families to support them through the entirety of their adoption journey,” Enoch added.
