CWLA Observes 2001 National Adoption Awareness Month

Child Welfare League of America
Thursday, 1 November 2001

According to the National Center for State Courts, approximately 2% of all U.S. children are adopted. However, across the country, there remain tens of thousands of children and teens awaiting their "forever home." Every bit as beautiful, complex, loving, and challenging as we all were as children, these kids share a different and stark reality - they don't have parents and homes to call their own.

November is National Adoption Awareness Month. The Child Welfare League of America (CWLA) asks that you consider running news stories and features in your community about the challenges facing children in need of families.

CWLA has a long history of supporting children and families through all phases of the adoption process. Established in 1920, the Child Welfare League of America is the nation's oldest and largest membership-based child welfare organization. Headquartered in Washington, DC, CWLA strives to advance sound public policy on behalf of the more than three million abused, neglected and vulnerable children served by its more than 1,160 public and private member agencies.

Please contact us if you are interested in writing about or producing television and radio public affairs programming on children in need of adoptive parenting in your community. We have adoption experts and professionals available to talk with you. Call or email Angela Blake at (202) 639-4922, ablake@cwla.org. Thank you for your consideration.
