Spotlight on National Adoption Month

This month's issue of CBX features the National Adoption Month 2018 initiative. Read a message from Jerry Milner, Associate Commissioner of the Children's Bureau, that highlights the importance of adoption as well as finding ways to keep families together through primary prevention to reduce the need for adoption. The issue also includes other adoption resources for professionals working to help children and youth find safe, nurturing, and permanent homes.
