Press Release
WASHINGTON – Today, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), Co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Foster Youth, released the following statement recognizing November as National Adoption Awareness Month.

“Adoption impacts millions of Americans every year,” Rep. Bass said. “Each November, we must take the time to further understand adoption and reassert our promise to continue to work to find solutions that help children find forever families. I’m especially encouraged by the growing inclusion of foster care and adoption in the definition of a modern family. Thanks to movies like Instant Family, which features a couple who stumbles into the world of foster care,  the stigmas of modern day adoption are quickly vanishing.

“Education is key to finding solutions. Thank you to the families, child welfare agencies and adoption professionals across our country that make forever families possible by working tirelessly to provide a warm and stable home for the nation’s youth.”
