May 2011Vol. 12, No. 4National Reunification Day Expands

National Reunification Day made its debut last summer and has been building momentum ever since. Promoted as a time to celebrate the many families whose children return home to live with their parents after time in foster care, National Reunification Day is expanding this year. Rather than designating one day, National Reunification Day will be celebrated around the country on different days between Mothers' Day and Fathers' Day (May 8 through June 19).

The American Bar Association's (ABA's) Center on Children and the Law has expanded its webpage and resources on National Reunification Day to help jurisdictions plan events and offer services related to reunification. The website also lists State celebrations, noting that some agencies have been celebrating Reunification Day for many years. The website offers a place for jurisdictions to register their own Reunification Day events.
