National Adoption Month 2015

Every day a child is welcomed into the security and loving embrace of an adoptive family. In November we celebrate National Adoption Month to recognize and honor those outstanding adoptive parents who have given children a permanent family to call their own. At DCF, we believe that every child deserves a safe and loving “forever” family.

DCF launched Wisconsin’s recognition of National Adoption Month with First Lady Tonette Walker and Wisconsin Department of Children and Families’ Secretary Eloise Anderson honoring four special adoptive families with the 2015 Governor’s Outstanding Adoptive Parent Award. The awards were presented during a celebration at the State Capitol as part of Wisconsin’s recognition of National Adoption Month.

This November we celebrate the positive impact adoptive families make in our communities. Although many children have found homes, many others are still waiting for loving families. DCF is proud to celebrate adoptive parents and to draw attention to the children who are waiting for parents to love.
