Are you thinking of adopting a child? Nearly 60 youth in Wake County are waiting for a stable, loving family to call their own.
If you’re considering adoption but have questions, you can learn more at Wake County’s information fair, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19, at the Wake County Commons Building in Raleigh. The fair — being held in celebration of National Adoption Day — will provide insight into the home study process, adoption assistance and adoption resources. You'll also learn about the Wake County children who are waiting to be adopted.
“Many families are thinking about adoption, but they don’t know where to begin,” says Jennifer Teska, a supervisor on Wake County’s Adoption Resource Team. “This event offers residents an opportunity to meet face-to-face with adoption experts to get their questions answered. We want to help families understand how to navigate the process so they can make their dreams of adoption a reality.”
The Wake County Commons Building is located at 4011 Carya Drive.
