11-01-12: November: National adoption awareness month

There are no unwanted children. Only unfound families.

That's the message from adoption advocates with Heart Gallery Alabama.

November is National Adoption Awareness month.

Governor and Mrs. Bentley will join with the Heart Gallery to celebrate National Adoption Month.

Beyond The Lens: An Adoption Celebration will take place this evening, November 1, 2012 at the Alabama School of Fine Arts, Dorothy Jemison Theatre at 7:00 p.m.

The program will feature families created through adoption, entertainment by the Extemporaneous New Theatre, portraits of Alabama children waiting for adoption, inspiring stories and a dessert reception.

Heart Gallery Alabama promotes adoption of the more than 275 children currently living in Alabama's foster care systems who are legally available for adoption and waiting for a forever family.
