November is National Adoption Month

Friday, November 5, 2021

In November, we recognize National Adoption Month to raise awareness of the need for adoptive families. Currently, there are more than 1,200 children looking for forever homes in Indiana.

In recognition of this month, the Indiana Adoption Program, the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) and the Indiana Supreme Court are working together to share stories of children who have found their families and home through adoption.

DCS will be sharing photos, videos and testimonials from adoption events across the state on their Stories of DCS website.

Every child deserves to have a loving home, a family that cares for them and the confidence that there is always someone in their corner. It is up to our community to protect these children and support the adoption care system that welcomes these children into families and gives them a chance to experience the love and care they deserve.
