Indiana Joins National Event On Adoption Awareness
Indiana joins states across the country in promoting November as National Adoption Awareness Month.
The Adoption Support Center in Indianapolis is an independent adoption agency. Founder Julie Craft says there are many adoption options. Craft says the decision first must be made on what kind of 'adoption adventure' is best
"you do need to decide what kind of adoption you want to do. whether you want to go through the state or even do a foster to adopt through the state. whether you want to go private adoption with an attorney, agency adoption, whether you want to go domestic or international "
Indiana will recognize National Adoption Day on Saturday, November 17. This annual event encourages families to consider adopting children in the foster care system.
Indiana completed nearly a record 18-hundred adoptions last year "But there are still so many children waiting for a family to adopt them and give them that permanent, life-long bond that only a family can provide," said Indiana Department of Child Services Director John Ryan.
