National Adoption Month 2021

National Adoption Month 2021


It’s National Adoption Month!  The initial idea for a recognized adoption awareness week came from Massachusetts governor Michael Dukakis in 1976, when he declared that his state would promote the need for adoption for seven days. Then, in 1984, President Reagan proclaimed the first National Adoption Week.  As more and more states began to celebrate adoption and hold events for National Adoption Week and its popularity grew, it was decided that a week was simply not enough. In 1995, President Clinton made November National Adoption Month and it’s been a special month for adoption ever since!


It’s National Adoption Month and Nate Leach with Herrin & Leach will attend final hearings for families throughout the state in multiple counties! We are committed to raising awareness for adoption and the need for adoptive families to provide permanency for children throughout Indiana.  Although all adoption-related issues are important, the particular focus of this month is adoption and permanency for children currently in foster care.  As such, I thought it was only fitting to share some photos of one of my favorite families that is definitely doing their part to provide permanency for children in Indiana!
