Each year, the Saturday before Thanksgiving marks National Adoption Day. It is a day dedicated to celebrating thousands of children finding their forever homes through adoption, and to raising awareness of the more than 120,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care in the United States. The first National Adoption Day was inspired by the innovative efforts of Michael Nash, a former presiding judge of Los Angeles County’s Juvenile Court. He opened the court on Saturdays, engaged the volunteer efforts of court personnel and finalized adoptions to reduce the backlog of one of the busiest courts in the nation.
