Currently, there are approximately 80 waiting children seeking adoption in Ramsey County every day. While this is an urgent need, many adults are stepping forward to provide permanent families.
The ceremony served as an opportunity to learn more about adoption, the adoption process.
The Ramsey County National Adoption Day event was part of the larger movement of courts and communities in all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, coming together to finalize adoptions of thousands of children. Since 2000, more than 30,000 children have had their adoptions finalized on National Adoption Day. For more information, visit www.nationaladoptionday.org.
