Event Details:

The 26th Annual DC Adoption Day ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 17, from 10am to noon on the third floor atrium of Moultrie Courthouse (500 Indiana Avenue, NW). This year’s program will highlight children’s literacy, and the importance of developing a love of reading from an early age. Reese Hoffa, Shot Put bronze medalist in the 2012 London Olympic Games and former foster child, will be our guest speaker. Barbara Harrison, NBC4 anchor and host of Wednesday’s Child, will be our mistress of ceremonies. This celebration is the cornerstone of the D.C. Child and Family Services Agency’s efforts to encourage members of the community to adopt children who are currently in foster care and to provide them with permanent and loving homes. More than 20 children will have their adoptions finalized during the ceremony, and the event will feature performances by talented local youth. A reception will immediately follow the program. If you are interested in becoming a foster or adoptive parent, there will be social workers present to talk with you about the process. If you are unable to attend, but interested, please contact CFSA at 202-671-LOVE (5683).
