WASHINGTON, DC, November 14, 2013 — November is a month to be thankful, and the Fairfax County Department of Family Services certainly is thankful for the families who adopted 35 children last year. But with 15 children currently in need of adoptive homes in Fairfax County, the Department is hoping it will have more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
As part of National Adoption Awareness Month this November, as proclaimed by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors last month, the Fairfax Department of Family Services is trying to break the myths from the facts of adoption.
To help spread the truth about adoptions, they are hosting a ‘Fall for Families Event’ this Friday at the Fairfax County Government Center.
The event, in honor of the adoptive families in the county as well as the 3 to 17 year olds currently waiting for adoption, will involve entertainment, food, and family photos.
It will also serve to promote this year’s National Adoption Day on Nov 23, a day which experts predict will lead to 4,500 adoptions across the country.
To find out more about the event or Fairfax adoptions in general, call 703-324-7639.
