24th Annual National Adoption Day in Douglas County, Nebraska

November 18 \\ 8:30 am

Adoption Saturday is a national event that the Douglas County Nebraska Juvenile Court has participated in since Retired Douglas County Juvenile Court Judge Wadie Thomas spearheaded Nebraska’s participation in it 24 years ago in 2000. Its purpose is to celebrate adoptions and attract media attention to the need for more foster and adoptive homes for children in the Child Welfare Systems across the country. We have had a wonderful media response each and every year, and as a result, there has been an increase in the number of individuals willing to open their homes as foster and/or adoptive parents.
