November is officially National Adoption Month. If you have been considering
adopting a child in need of permanency and a family they can call their own, there is really
no better time to do it.
Adoption Rhode Island, an organization dedicated to finding homes for the hundreds of kids throughout
the state up for adoption, is bringing attention to National Adoption
Month by hosting the 2016 National Adoption Month Celebration and Award
Ceremony. As part of the event, there will be Rhode Island’s 12th Annual
Heart Gallery, which is a portrait exhibit that showcases the faces and personalities
of the children in need of a home. The
Heart Gallery has been such a great driving force for adoption throughout the years,
and it is wonderful to know that they have brought it together once again.
2016 National Adoption Month Celebration information:
Date: Thursday, November 17th, 2016
Time: 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM
Address: 82 Smith Street, Providence, Rhode Island 02903
Building: Rhode Island State House Chamber Room, third floor of Statehouse
In addition to hosting the
Heart Gallery exhibit, the event will take the time to honor those throughout Rhode
Island that have helped encourage adoption, either through similar events
or through easing the legal process. Honorees are expected to include
individual community members, entire organizations and associations, and
DCYF social workers. Of course, refreshments will be served throughout the evening.
Invitations to the celebration and ceremony will be mailed out to residents
soon. If you do not receive one but would like to attend, feel free to
