About National Adoption Day

When is National Adoption Day? This holiday is the Saturday before Thanksgiving

National Adoption Day is today. A variety of childcare and adoption groups promote and sponsor this special day. According to the websites of these sponsors, this day was created to finalize thousands of annual adoptions, and to celebrate and give recognition to families that adopt children. It is also intended to raise awareness of the tens of thousands of children awaiting adoption. They need a warm and loving home and family.

Does the idea of being adoptive parents interest you? Thousands upon thousands of children are waiting impatiently for you to take the step, that will bring them the love and happiness of a permanent family surrounding. Without a doubt, this is a challenging endeavor. But, it is also a rewarding one. 

We hope you use National Adoption Day to take the first step in the adoption process.

History and Origin of National Adoption Day

A variety of childcare and child adoption agencies and organizations sponsor and promote National Adoption Day

It wasn’t until 2006 that this day was celebrated in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.  We feel it is one of the more important special days in the entire calendar.

This day is described as a “National” day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation creating this day as a national day.
