For over two decades, National Adoption Month has been promoted and celebrated every November in communities across the country. Many national, State, and local agencies as well as foster, kinship care, and adoptive family groups will help spread the word through programs, events, and activities that help raise awareness for thousands of children and youth in foster care who are waiting for permanent, loving families. Currently, Wisconsin has over 1,300 children in foster care awaiting adoption.
“Adoption is close to our hearts at Wisconsin Family Council, partly because I am adopted,” shares WFA president Julaine Appling, “But also because we know adoption is often a very good option for a woman who is considering an abortion. So this month we will be doing a special emphasis on adoption through our Wisconsin Family Minute because we believe giving children a forever earthly family is life-changing!”
