November is National Adoption Month. This is an initiative of the Children's Bureau that seeks to increase awareness and bring attention to the need for families for children and youth in the foster care system. This year's theme is Teens Need Families, No Matter What. Oftentimes, teens will age out of the foster care system without a stable support system.
