National Adoption Month 2015 Recap

by Ashley Beckwith, Adoption Specialist 

Did you know that our biggest adoption month each year is National Adoption Month (November)?

On November 18th, 2015 (National Adoption Day) alone, we had six children (all girls) finalize their adoptions!  We had one additional adoption at the end of November, making a total of seven total children and teens adopted during the month of November. 

In 2015, 32 children and teens throughout Polk, Hardee and Highlands counties were either matched with a family, or finalized their adoption with a family they were matched with! 

National Adoption Day Celebration

We held our annual Adoption Day Celebration on November 14th where all families who have finalized their adoption between December 2014 and November 2015 were invited to celebrate the adoptions with us.  Our event was at Mary Holland Park, and we had games coordinated by each of our case managment organizations, a professional photographer to take family photos, and food from Sonny’s BBQ!   A wonderful time was had by all!
