NATIONAL ADOPTION DAY
Each year, one week prior to Thanksgiving, National Adoption Day is celebrated locally at the Thurston County Family and Juvenile Courthouse. The event is attended by families, professional staff from DCYF, CASA staff and volunteers, private and public sector attorneys, court staff and elected officials at the local and state level. Food, beverages, flowers, family photos, art activities, books, bears and more are donated by local businesses.
This day is a culmination of months of work by many volunteers (attorneys, DCYF staff, CASA staff, court staff and others) and is filled with joy for the new families!
The Court is proud to take part in celebrating such a special day.
