Massachusetts Proclamation for National Adoption Day

Governor Baker proclaimed Nov. 19, 2021 as Adoption Day in Massachusetts to raise awareness of the importance of foster care and adoption for many children in the Commonwealth, and to celebrate the families brought together through adoption.

Massachusetts Department of Children & Families 

The Department of Children and Families (DCF) works in partnership with families and communities to keep children safe from abuse and neglect. In most cases, DCF is able to provide supports and services to keep children safe with parents or family members. When necessary, DCF provides foster care or finds new permanent families for children through kinship, guardianship or adoption.
