National Adoption Month
The focuses of National Adoption Month are to celebrate new families that have adopted and to recruit adoptive families for the approximate 750 Florida children who are in need of a permanent, loving family to call their own. Teenagers, sibling groups, and children with special needs usually wait the longest for their permanent family. Events will be held throughout the state to increase awareness about public adoption in Florida and celebrate the joys of family through adoption.
The Governor's Office of Adoption and Child Protection in collaboration with the Department of Children and Families has released a public service announcement featured below and on YouTube.
