National Adoption Awareness Month began in 1976 when former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis proclaimed Adoption Week in an effort to promote awareness of the need for adoptive families for children in foster care. Soon after that, former President Gerald Ford issued the first National Adoption Week proclamation. Locally, Fairfax County is committed to helping children in the foster care system find permanent homes.
