National Adoption Day is celebrated every November 19. Did you know that in 2015 alone, 4,000 adoptions were finalized on the Saturday before Thanksgiving? Events are held all over the country to celebrate this holiday — during which communities and courts join efforts to find the right families for children in the foster care system.

Let’s celebrate National Adoption Day as thousands of foster children are welcomed into their forever homes!


  1. Volunteer at an event

    Help one of the hundreds of organizations that support National Adoption Day, such as the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, The Alliance for Children’s Rights, and Children’s Action Network. Get involved in a rally, volunteer at an adoption exhibit, or donate your time to a local fundraising event.

  2. Use social media

    Promote adoption with the hashtag #nationaladoptionday. The more we know, the more we are engaged, and the more children find forever homes.

  3. Take a leap

    Looking to grow your family? Consider adoption! It may not be for everyone, but if you have considered adoption, join the thousands who have given a precious child a forever home.
