National Adoption Day

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Thousands of Arizona children are waiting to be adopted. Tomorrow, hundreds of them will finally have a place to call home. It's part of National Adoption Day, a national day of celebration of adoptive families and an opportunity for courts to open their doors and finalize the adoptions of children from foster care.

Since 2000, more than 30,000 children have had their adoptions finalized on National Adoption Day.

This year on Nov.20, families, adoption advocates, policymakers, judges and volunteers will come together and celebrate adoption in communities large and small all across the nation.

Tess Rafols introduces us to one Valley mother who will be celebrating National Adoption Day with her newly adopted son.
