YFA's Manatee County Adoption Services Program will celebrate National Adoption Day this Friday, November 17, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at the Manatee County Courthouse (1051 Manatee Ave West, Bradenton, FL 34205).
The program works in partnership with the Safe Children Coalition and the Heart Gallery of Sarasota to ensure children and youth available for adoption find their "forever family." The program plans to finalize at least 3 adoptions during the ceremony.
YFA has provided adoption services in Central Florida since 2005 and provided "forever families" for over 2,700 children and youth.
According to their website, "National Adoption Day is a collective national effort to raise awareness of the more than 110,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. A coalition of national partners – Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, The Alliance for Children’s Rights and Children’s Action Network – sponsor National Adoption Day."
