2022 Roanoke County/Salem Adoption Celebration

November 19 \\ 11:00 am

It all actually begins (for our families) at 10:00 at the Roanoke Co. Circuit Court, where Judge Swanson and the deputies have a special Saturday Adoption Finalization hearing and ceremony for any of our Adoptive Families who request to finalize their adoption on National Adoption Day. Then at 11:00, we will host a celebration at Andrew Lewis Middle School for ALL of our community’s adoptions, past and present; where we expect a bouncy house, inflatable obstacle course, airbrush tattoos, face-painting, a DJ, kid’s games, mascots and all sorts of local foster/adoption vendors giving away items to celebrate our families. We will have food and speakers at 12. Then it all wraps up at 1:00 and we send everyone on to the next chapter of their lives.
