November is Adoption Awareness Month, and the Children’s Aid Society of Algoma would like to take this time to educate the public about the importance of lifelong connections for children and youth in care through adoption.
“Every child and youth needs, and deserves, a forever family. Adoption is a way in which this type of long-term commitment and relationship can be achieved” says Kim Streich-Poser, Executive Director.
The Children’s Aid Society of Algoma is actively looking for families interested in adoption, especially those who have the strengths and skills to offer children and youths who may be older, may have siblings, may have “open” agreements with their families of origin, or who may have complex developmental and health needs.
To learn more about adoption, the Children’s Aid Society of Algoma will be hosting an Adoption Information Session open to the community. Information on adoption through the Children’s Aid Society of Algoma will be available. Anyone interested will have the opportunity to speak to staff and adoptive parents to gather information, and have questions answered.
