November is Adoption Awareness Month


Children need to have roots. To experience healthy development and create a sense of self-worth, children need to feel a sense of belonging, with a permanent family who cares for them.

The reality is that for some kids, this is not possible, and children come into the care of Children’s Aid.  Sometimes it is because they have parents who are not able to provide a safe living environment. In other cases, parents choose to make an adoption plan for their child.

Children who are in the care of Children’s Aid may become available for adoption into a permanent family. The Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa helps children make successful transitions into their adoptive families.
