Orange County Family Court National Adoption Day Celebration
Our celebration consists of speakers from various points in the adoption process, including the DSS caseworkers who work with foster families, the judges who finalize the adoptions, the families who provide forever homes and the people who have been adopted. Adoptees who have spoken include enthusiastic young children who have volunteered to speak from the audience and adult adoptees who have prepared inspiring remarks. DSS displays its "Heart Gallery", showing some of the children who are in need of forever homes. This year, our theme will be "Superheros of Adoption," honoring all those involved in the process of placing the children in their forever homes, but especially our superhero children.
