National Adoption Month: $100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway

National Adoption Month Awareness Giveaway- US 18+- Ends 11-30-15We are shar­ing this post as part of a Blog­gin’ Mamas Social Good Cam­paign, and were not com­pen­sated for doing so.

Bloggin' Mamas is sponsoring this giveaway in support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, AdoptUSKids, and the Ad Council. November is National Adoption Month and they are encouraging prospective parents to adopt older youth from foster care. The theme for National Adoption Month is, "We Never Outgrow the Need for Family."
That's because older children and youth still have many big milestones in their life they need a family for. There are 415,000 children in the U.S. foster care system and 108,000 are waiting to be adopted.


AdoptUSKids’ maintains a national photo listing service for children waiting to be adopted. Since the project launched in 2002, more than 25,000 children who were once photo listed on adoptuskids.org have been adopted and nearly 38,000 families have registered to adopt through the website. Nevertheless, older youth are disproportionately represented – approximately 41 percent of children and youth photo listed on adoptuskids.org are between 15 and 18 years old, but only 17 percent of those adopted have been in this age group. Older youth and teens have lower adoption rates than younger children, and they often wait longer to be adopted. But no matter their age, all kids need a supportive, loving home and the teenage years are a critical period for growth.

   

Visit adoptuskids.org or to call 1-888-200-4005(English) or 1-877-236-7831 (Spanish) to receive the latest information about the foster care system and the adoption process. You can also visit the campaign’s communities on Facebook and Twitter.

  1. I learned that they have been able to find loving homes for older children! That is amazing, it saddens me that so many children are stuck in the system because they are older and most families want to adopt babies, which I understand, but all children need good loving homes.
