Baltimore City National Adoption Day Celebration
On Saturday, November 17, 2018, the Bar Association of Baltimore City, in conjunction with the Circuit Court for Baltimore City and the Department of Social Services, will sponsor its 13th Annual National Adoption Day Celebration. This event not only celebrates the children whose adoptions are finalized that day but is part of the national effort to raise awareness of the more than 117,000 children currently in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. This event will be held in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City’s Ceremonial Courtroom 400, Clarence Mitchell, Jr. Courthouse, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The adoption ceremony lasts from approximately 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The fun then begins when the 150+ attendees come to Kaplan Court (2nd floor) to enjoy all of the activities including face painting, temporary tattoos, balloon art, gifts for the children, and a dessert reception.
