November is National Adoption Awareness Month

November is National Adoption Awareness Month. More than 100,000 children are waiting to be adopted out of foster care. Over 6800 are waiting in Texas.

The Law Office of Jennifer R. Cochran is proud to be a sponsor of the annual conference hosted by Adoption Knowledge Affiliates on November 13,14 as well as Austin Adoption Day on November 5, 2015. The Austin Adoption Day is an event where the adoption of children in foster care in Travis County will be finalized. It's a huge celebration! There's also celebrations in Bastrop, Bell, Williamson, and Comal counties, as well as statewide.

"I'm really excited to be a part of both events as adoption is very personal to me as an adoptive parent," commented Jennifer Cochran. "I became a mom through adoption in November 2012 so November is very special for personal and professional reasons. It's a time of reflection and celebration. I encourage everyone in the community to learn more about adoption and volunteer their time, even if it's donating a few dollars or attending an adoption day to experience firsthand the joy of the creation of a forever family."

There are several ways learn to celebrate adoption in a special way, check out this calendar outlining 30 Ways to Celebrate Adoption.
