National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Month, and we shared stories of LGBTQ families formed through adoption, resources that help navigate the challenges of the adoption process, and opportunities to take action.

Across the United States, over 110,000 children and youth are living in foster care and waiting to be adopted; waiting to be placed with a loving, “forever family.”

Family Equality Council is proud to make improving child welfare systems and adoption placement rates a centerpiece of our mission, and during National Adoption Month, we focus special attention on the stories of LGBTQ families formed through adoption, to help reveal some of the unique challenges faced by LGBTQ youth, and LGBTQ parents, when navigating the adoption process.
