November is Adoption Awareness Month


Children of all ages and backgrounds need a base to build their lives on. Having that base helps in healthy development and creates a sense of self-worth and belonging. Children get that base from a permanent family who cares for them.

This November, the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa wants bring awareness to the fact that some of the children in our city need help to get the family they need.

Due to any number of reasons, children sometimes come into the care of The Children's Aid Society of Ottawa. In the rare case where they can’t return home, a child begins the process that will hopefully end with them finding stability through adoption.

Adoption isn't just beneficial for the children. Adoptive parents can add fulfilment and joy to their lives as well. They haven’t simply done a good thing; they will also develop rewarding and lifelong bonds.
