National Adoption Month also means a special day throughout the United States set aside as National Adoption Day. And National Adoption Day means that many, many children officially join their forever families.
In Nebraska, it’s called their adoption birthday! So courtrooms filled with adoptive parents and children are also filled with music. “Happy Birthday” is the song of the day and smiles abound in these Omaha courtrooms.
“So many of our kids spent years in the foster system without really having that foundation of a family and so to have this many kids and this big of a turnout is a really great thing for us to see,” said Rochelle Juilfs, a CASA supervisor in the area.
