National Adoption Day November 19, 2011

More than 4,500 children in foster care found their forever families during the 12th annual National Adoption Day celebration in 400 cities across the United States. Thanks to the efforts of adoption advocates, policymakers, judges and lawyers, nearly 40,000 children have been adopted from foster care on National Adoption Day since 2000.

A big thank you to our supporters for helping to make the holidays of Los Angeles foster children truly special.  More than 200 foster children will receive the gifts they wished for from scooters and bikes to Easy Bake Ovens and Barbies!
An extra special thank you to Anne Simonds for giving her time and energy to make this project a tremendous success!
