The Adoption Journey exhibition, Nov. 18th

In honor of Adoption Awareness Month in November, The Up Center, along with 3 other adoption agencies–Bethany Christian Services, Lutheran Family Services of Virginia, United Methodist Family Services– will host  The Adoption Journey, an interactive exhibition showing guests the adoption process and the impact it has on children needing a loving home, on Sunday, Nov. 18 from noon to 4 p.m at Pembroke Mall in Virginia Beach.

This effort is to support the great need for more adoptive homes. In Virginia, approximately 5,300 children live in some type of foster care setting. Many have spent most of their lives in this “temporary” situation, and have moved within the child welfare system more times than they care to remember. Many will never return to their birth families. Approximately 1,500 youth in Virginia are legally free for adoption.
