FREEHOLD – In celebration of National Adoption Day, the Monmouth Vicinage will hold a program at 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the Jury Assembly Room in the lower level of the west wing of the Monmouth County Courthouse, 71 Monument Park.
Adoptions will be finalized for 22 children ranging from two months to 13 years of age. Nine of those adoptions were arranged through the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCP&P).
“The annual Adoption Day program helps to enrich our community by promoting permanency for children in caring homes,” Assignment Judge Lawrence M. Lawson said. “This memorable and meaningful event also defines our commitment to increasing awareness of adoption and honoring adoptive families.”
