Event Details:

For the 14th consecutive year, Los Angeles will celebrate National Adoption Day at the Edmund D. Edelman Children's Court with the finalization of over 100 foster children's adoptions. We will celebrate National Adoption Day on Friday, November 22, with a press conference (TBD) led by Presiding Judge Michael Nash, followed by adoptions hearings from 1:30 pm through 4:00 pm. The courthouse will be decorated festively with balloons, and there will be refreshments, arts and crafts, and entertainment for the children and families.

National Adoption Day in Los Angeles is a collaborative effort of the Los Angeles Juvenile Court, the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, Alliance for Children's Rights, Public Counsel Law Center, and Children's Action Network, as well as dozens of volunteer pro bono attorneys coming together to help finalize these forever families.
