      Governor Dayton proclaims Adoption Awareness Month in Minnesota

      Posted on November 23, 2011 at 9:03 AM

      Governor Dayton has proclaimed November 2011 as Adoption Awareness Month in Minnesota, encouraging citizens to be aware of the many children in foster care still waiting to be adopted into nurturing homes, and express great appreciation for adoptive families who have opened their hearts and homes to children in need.

      One of the greatest gifts a person can give is opening their heart and home to adopt a child or sibling group from the foster care system. There are thousands of children in foster care in Minnesota, waiting to be adopted by families who can provide safe, permanent homes.

      Adopted children have a positive impact on families and bring great happiness and all children deserve to grow up in a nurturing environment where they feel loved, safe, and stable.
