Child Advocates of Fort Bend to Celebrate National Adoption Day with Partner Agencies

November 14 2023

This Friday, the Fort Bend County 328th, 387th, and 505th District Courts are joining forces with courts across the country opening their doors on National Adoption Day to finalize adoptions of children from foster care and to celebrate all families who adopt. According to Child Advocates of Fort Bend, there are more than 100,000 children across the country waiting to be adopted – nearly 6,000 of those are in Texas. Seven children were adopted from foster care in Fort Bend County earlier this year and another four will be adopted on Friday, November 17.

National Adoption Day is sponsored by a coalition of national partners to draw attention to the 100,000+ foster children waiting for adoption in the United States and to celebrate all loving families who adopt. Partners in this endeavor include The Alliance for Children’s Rights, Casey Family Services, Children’s Action Network, The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Freddie Mac Foundation and Target Corporation.
