National Adoption Day - ABC News

Click here for the National Adoption Day (NAD) coverage on ABC News.  NAD took place last November when over 100 children in foster care in Los Angeles County were adopted into permanent, loving homes (hundreds more nationwide).  These adoptions were made possible by the work of Public Counsel's Adoptions Project staff, led by Karen Ullman, Senior Supervising Attorney of Public Counsel's Adoptions Project who is interviewed in the ABC piece.

 

These adoptions were also made possible by the good work of the Alliance for Children's Rights and by the extraordinary support of the many pro bono firms who worked with Public Counsel's Adoptions Project for this National Adoption Day event including Bingham McCutchen LLP; Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP; Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP; Morrison & Foerster LLP; Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP; Proskauer; Reed Smith LLP; and Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP.

 

Our thanks go to all the participating pro bono firms and congratulations to all the new families.  We're sure this will be an extraordinary holiday season for them all.
