A celebration of foster care adoption

Children’s Action Network is proud to announce the 24th ANNUAL A HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS AT THE GROVE hosted by Gloria Estefan, featuring uplifting stories of adoption from foster care and raising awareness of this important social issue, will be broadcast Friday, December 23 (9:00-9:00PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+*.

The special, which filmed at The Grove in Los Angeles, will enhance the inspirational stories of several American families with performances by extraordinary artists, including Estefan, Andy Grammer, Little Big Town, David Foster & Kat McPhee and Mickey Guyton.

The special is presented in association with the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children’s Action Network.  Thousands of people have been inspired to seek more information on becoming an adoptive parent as a direct result of A Home for the Holidays.


AHFTH waiting children segments have provided a call to action for more than 100 youth in foster care, with a more than 60% success rate moving the children toward adoption. In 2008, A Home for the Holidays was a recipient of the Second Annual Television Academy Honors and also received The US Children’s Bureau award for Adoption Excellence.
