November National Adoption Month

Posted on December 10, 2012

Erie County Department of Job and Family Services, Children's Services Division capped off National Adoption Month in November with a celebration at the Thirsty Pony in Sandusky. The management of Thirsty Pony supported the event by providing a night of bowling and pizza for the twenty people who attended. A special congratulation complete with cake was given to the three children who were adopted in 2012 and to the families who made Dessa, Derrick and Ben part of their lives.

The Kiwanis Club of Sandusky also allowed Children's Services to present the program for their November meeting. The focus of the program was the need for "foster to adopt" homes in Erie County and included information on the steps needed to become such a provider.
