Wake County to Host Information Fair on National Adoption Day

Nearly 60 youth in Wake County are waiting for a stable, loving family to adopt them. Families who choose the life-changing path of adoption make a meaningful and lasting difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable young people in our community.

In celebration of National Adoption Day, Wake County will host an information fair on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Wake County Commons Building for families considering adoption. The event will provide information on the home study process, adoption assistance, adoption resources and the Wake County children who are waiting for families to call their own.

"Many families are thinking about adoption, but they don't know where to begin," said Jennifer Teska, a supervisor on Wake County's Adoption Resource Team. "This event offers residents an opportunity to meet face to face with adoption experts to get their questions answered. We want to help families understand how to navigate the process, so they can make their dreams of adoption a reality."

The information fair will take place from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. at 4011 Carya Drive in Raleigh.

In Fiscal Year 2016, 104 children in Wake County were adopted from foster care into permanent homes.
