Last year, our National Adoption Day was the biggest in the nation.  The final numbers for our 15th annual event were:

  • 208 Adoption Hearings
  • 311 Children Adopted
  • 2850 People attended
  • 117 Volunteers (including 27 Judges, 23 Clerks, 32 Juvenile Court Staff)
  • We just missed the 3,000 mark for total children adopted on NAD since 2000 by 8!

“Adopting 1 child won’t change the world….But for that 1 child the world will change."

A huge thank you!

Submitted by Adoption Day

Maricopa County National Adoption Day 2013 was a huge success!  Over 290 children's adoptions were finalized on November 23, 2013.  

A huge congratulations goes out to each and every child who now has a forever family.  

Because this event is run entirely by volunteers and donations.  The day could not be possible without the generosity of each and every donor to our Foundation.  

We need to give a speical thank you to Fore Adoption Foundation who has made this even possible for many many years.
