November - Adoption Awareness November - Adoption Awareness

Adoption in British Columbia


Help us celebrate Adoption Awareness month and help raise awareness for children and youth still waiting for permanent families.

Adoptive families make a difference in the lives of children and youth by providing care, stability, and a sense of belonging. This month, the province is celebrating the families that give children and youth love and support as permanent members of their family. These families ensure that children and youth have a strong foundation to build their lives and stay connected to their community and culture.

November is also about recognizing that there are children who are still in need of permanent homes. Every child deserves the love and support of a nurturing family. There continues to be a need for more adoptive families in British Columbia to provide children with permanent, secure, and loving homes.
