New Jersey County celebrates national adoption month

November is national adoption month in the United States, and it is a time to contemplate the hundreds of children who are adopted each year. These children are sometimes from countries all over the world or could even be from an organization in the potential parent's area. Nevertheless, the adoption of a child is typically a joyous experience for those involved. One county in New Jersey finalized dozens of adoptions on Nov. 20, national adoption day.

A total of 51 children were adopted on the 20th, which was a new record for the number of adoptions in the county in one day. It was also the 10th year that the New Jersey county had celebrated the national adoption day. The youngest child who was adopted was just 6 months old, while the oldest was 15 years old. One adoption was of a child from the Philippines.

Thirty-seven of the children were from the Child Protection and Permanency division. It was also predicted that over 250 adoptions will be finalized before the end of the year. The county has one of the highest numbers of adoptions in New Jersey.

Adoption can be a very rewarding experience and can bring the parents and children joy for many years. However, the road to that sublime moment can be very long and confusing. Luckily, there are people in New Jersey and the rest of the United States who are willing to help potential parents navigate this long road, and hopefully unite them with their child once all of the legal obligations are met.
