November is National Adoption Month
Iowa KidsNet provides support, services to adoptive families in Jasper County
November each year is recognized as National Adoption Month across the United States. It is a time to recognize those who serve the more than 100,000 children who are waiting to be adopted out of foster care.
According to the most recent statistics from the Iowa Department of Human Services, more than 600 children in Iowa are eligible for adoption from foster care. While many of those children already have an adoptive home identified, there are many still waiting to for a permanent home.
“Every child in our state deserves to have a permanent connection to a caring adult,” Iowa KidsNet Director Theresa Lewis said. “Iowa has an ongoing need for more foster and adoptive families, especially those who can care for teens, sibling groups and children with special needs. Nationally, each year over 23,000 youth turn 18 and age out of foster care without having permanent family connections. Together we can make sure all Iowa youth have the support they need to reach their bright potential.”
