November is National Adoption Month and it is an opportunity to increase our awareness about foster care and adoption in Maine. It is a time to celebrate families who have grown through adoption. It is a time to listen and learn from youth who have been adopted. It’s also a time to recognize and advocate for the many local youth who are still waiting for adoptive families.
- There are over 2,400 Maine children in foster care.
- Many of those children are awaiting adoptive families.
- The majority of children in care are between 9 and 17 years old.
November is a great month to explore how your community can get involved. I’ve attached our most recent newsletter, a flyer and our community partnership outline.
Together we can make a difference!QnA-flyer-pdf
