Hatch Sponsors Resolution to Increase Adoption Awareness

The United States Senate has unanimously adopted a resolution recognizing November as National Adoption Month and November 21 as National Adoption Day. Senator Hatch, an original co-sponsor of this resolution, issued the following statement:

“This resolution states what we all know in our hearts, that every child should have a permanent and loving family. Hundreds of thousands of children in the foster care system in the United States, and millions more around the world, do not have a family they can call their own. Those who open their homes and families to these children are examples of love and sacrifice and deserve respect and support. I hope that more people will consider adoption and that the United States will do everything possible to facilitate opportunities for children around the world to find their permanent and loving home in America.”
