National Adoption Day celebration set Nov. 22 in Dover Each year in Delaware, nearly 100 children find their perma- nent families through adoption. Delaware will join states and communities nationwide in host- ing a National Adoption Day event Saturday, Nov. 22. National Adoption Day is an opportunity to celebrate families who have been built through adoption, Delaware's event will take place at the Elizabeth Murphey School gymnasium at 42 Kings Highway East, Dover from 1 to 2:30 p.m. It will include recognition of adoptive families who have final- ized adoptions in 2013-14, along with the Delaware Family Court judges who finalized those adop- tions. Remarks will be provided by Kent County Family Court Judge Kenneth Millman. Miss Delaware's Outstanding Teen Grace Otley, an adopted child, will also perform during the ceremony. As part of the celebration, rep- resentatives from the Children's Department's Division of Fam- ily Services, Delaware licensed adoption agencies, and support organizations will be on hand to provide guidance, literature and answers to any questions about adoption and post-adoption sup- port. Visitors can also view Dela- ware's Heart Gallery, a series of poster-sized pictures of children waiting to be matched with their forever family. There is a need in Delaware for more families interested in adopting children, particularly older children and teens, African- American youth, and children with special needs. The Children's Department provides services to children who have been abused, neglect- ed, are dependent, have mental health or substance problems, or have been adjudicated de- linquent by the courts, as well as prevention services targeted toward all youth.
