All Children - All Families Celebrates National Adoption Month

Join the All Children – All Families project as we celebrate National Adoption Month with our partner agencies and Raise A Child this November. These agencies have earned the All Children – All Families Seal of Recognition by achieving each of our 10 Benchmarks, making them Leaders in Supporting and Serving LGBT Families within the realm of adoptive and foster care services.

Our events all over the country will serve to raise awareness of opportunities for LGBT individuals and couples to foster and adopt, with the ultimate goal of helping children everywhere find a forever home. Permanency is the theme of this year’s National Adoption Month, so we cordially invite you to help us help more children gain access to more families and make connections that will last a lifetime.
