November is recognized annually as Adoption Awareness Month. World Adoption Day is observed on November 15th, while the USA's National Adoption Day is observed on the Saturday preceding Thanksgiving each year, November 17th in 2018. The collective effort is intended to raise awareness about adoption. In 2017, nearly 5,000 American youths in foster care were adopted; while another 117,000 plus children in foster care await placement with permanent and loving families.
