Historic City News has been asked to invite all current and prospective foster and adoptive families to the 5th annual Adoption Day Event sponsored by the St. Johns County Family Integrity Program.
The open house program will be this Friday, November 21st from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the Conference Room of the County Health and Human Services Building located at 1955 US-1 South.
As the child of adoptive parents, I understand the special warmth that is felt in an adoptive home. Adopted children are always planned and always wanted by their adoptive parents; as was the case in my own family.
The purpose of the Adoption Day Event is to recognize foster and adoptive families in the community and to raise awareness for the ongoing need for adoptive and foster parents.
The evening will include speakers, awards, food, drinks, and kid-friendly games and crafts.
For more information about the Adoption Day Event, or to learn about becoming a foster or adoptive parent, call the Family Integrity Program at (904) 209-6130.
