Adoption professionals across the United States should plan to make a virtual trip this November to the new National Adoption Month site, sponsored by the Children's Bureau at index.cfm.

The site features the President's annual proclamation about National Adoption Month and information on National Adoption Day, celebrated this year on November 17.

A calendar of suggestions for promoting adoption awareness is available on the home page in PDF and HTML formats. Three new buttons direct users to resources for kids, resources for parents and teachers, and information on how to adopt.

The National Adoption Month site is managed by the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse ( To order Clearinghouse Adoption Month materials featured on the site, call 1-888-251-0075.
