Subject: Join in Raising Awareness for National Adoption Month!

When youth are connected to their roots, they can build a strong identity. But for approximately 114,000 children and youth waiting to be adopted who are at risk of aging out of care, it’s difficult to experience these connections when they are separated from their families.   

This year, during National Adoption Month, the Children’s Bureau within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services urges us to focus on the importance of “Empowering Youth: Finding Points of Connection.” This theme emphasizes the importance of providing opportunities and services that connect youth to their backgrounds to support meaningful permanent relationships.

Together we can make a difference in how we support and partner with youth in planning their future by making identity a part of the conversation from the very beginning. Visit the website to learn more about National Adoption Month and find tools and resources to educate yourself and your community about how we can achieve better outcomes for youth in foster care.

Make sure you're following the #NationalAdoptionMonth campaign on FacebookX (formerly Twitter), and LinkedIn so you can help share and amplify these important messages in November!

Subject: Empowering Youth: Finding Points of Connection—November Is National Adoption Month!

There are approximately 114,000 children and youth waiting to be adopted who are at risk of aging out of care without permanent family connections, and many are looking for answers about their identity. Without access to or knowledge of their history, many teens may leave foster care disconnected from their roots and wondering, “Who am I?”   

This year, National Adoption Month will raise awareness about the important role that child welfare professionals play in providing opportunities and services that empower youth to build meaningful connections that will affirm their holistic identity.

Use the National Adoption Month resource collection to learn about creating welcoming spaces where teens can feel safe to explore their identities. This will help you build relationships and partner with youth to plan for their future.
