Mangano Announces National Adoption Day In Nassau County

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano announced today that the Nassau County Department of Social Services and Nassau County Family Court, in partnership with the Long Island Children’s Museum, will participate in a National Adoption Day Ceremony on Monday, November 21, 2016 at the Long Island Children’s Museum in Garden City beginning at 10:00 a.m., where the adoptions of 16 children in foster care will be finalized.

“This is a wonderful and inspiring celebration,” said County Executive Mangano. “Nassau County is dedicated to building and strengthening our families. We are devoted to ensuring every child freed for adoption has a permanent, loving family. Our goal is a family for every child and we are fortunate to have a number of foster and adoptive families who want to provide children in foster care with permanence.”

November is recognized as National Adoption Month, the purpose of which is to focus attention on children in the child welfare system that are in foster care and “freed,” meaning they are waiting to be adopted. Following the ceremony, a reception will be held for families finalizing adoptions and families who have adopted during the year.

“The Family Court of Nassau County is thrilled to participate in providing safe, loving and forever homes for the children of our County,” added Supervising Judge Edmund M. Dane.

“The partnership between Long Island Children’s Museum and the Department of Social Services and Family Court illustrates the value of public/private partnerships in enriching the lives of Nassau County’s children and families,” explains LICM President Suzanne LeBlanc. “Hosting Nassau County’s “Adoption Day” and sharing in the excitement as “forever families” are made and celebrated is a natural extension of the Museum’s commitment to our community. The Children’s Museum will provide each new family with a complimentary year-long family membership to the Children’s Museum.”

“This is our fifteenth successive year participating in National Adoption Day,” added Social Services Commissioner Dr. John E. Imhof. “Since first celebrating this day in 2002, we finalized a total of 246 children during the last fourteen Adoption Day celebrations. We continue to work hard to find nurturing and loving foster and adoptive parents for every Nassau County child needing a permanent home and family.”

For residents interested in fostering or adopting, call the Department of Social Services Recruitment Unit at (516) 227-7613 for further information.
