BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard Family Partnership, in conjunction with the Honorable Charlie Crawford, Guardian ad Litem Program, Family Allies and IMPOWER, hosted a Celebration of Adoption event on November 16 to celebrate the joining of 21 Brevard County foster youth with their “forever families.”
During the official, yet festive ceremonial proceedings, each family appeared before Judge Crawford and Brevard Family Partnership’s attorney, and presented the final permanency documents to the court, completing the adoption process.
Following the ceremonies, a lunch reception for the newly-formed families was held in the courtroom, provided by Chick-fil-A of Viera.
The celebration aligns with November’s National Adoption Month, an initiative of the Children’s Bureau, with a goal to increase national awareness and bring attention to the need for permanent families for children and youth in the U.S. foster care system.
Brevard Family Partnership, along with partner agency IMPOWER, has joined with the Brevard community giving youth whose parents could no longer care for them, the safety and stability of a permanent and lasting family connection.
Since Inception in 2005 more than 1,000 children have been adopted out of Brevard’s child welfare system.
