Prince William County SealPRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA . . . The Prince William County Department of Social Services will host the 2013 National Adoption Day Ceremony on Saturday, November 23, at 10 a.m., in the Prince William County Circuit Court.  The ceremony will honor 18 children who will be officially adopted from foster care in Prince William County.

National Adoption Day is a local campaign to encourage families throughout the Prince William community to open their hearts and homes to children in foster care waiting to be adopted. Currently 140 children in the Prince William area are living in foster homes. Children enter foster care through no fault of their own; as victims of child abuse, neglect or abandonment. Some children in foster care will return to their homes.  Others, whose parents’ legal rights have been terminated, will become eligible for adoption into a permanent home.
