Presidential Proclamation

  • Each year, the President of the United States makes a proclamation to announce that November is National Adoption Month. (This is updated as soon as the proclamation is made.) Presidential Proclamation for 2011.

National Adoption Day

  • Along with the month long celebration is the very special Adoption Day. November 17, 2012, will mark the 13th National Adoption Day. It’s a special day because thousands of adoptions are finalized in court rooms all across the United States. The celebration grows larger each year as more and more states and courtrooms become involved.
