  • DCF is dedicating its monthly theme and its Facebook page to adoption for the entire month of November.
  • On November 22, National Adoption Day was celebrated in a number of Superior Courts across the state with formal legal proceedings to finalize adoptions open to the media.
  • A special exhibition of artwork, “Doors to Hope and Healing,” by children at the Department’s Albert J. Solnit Psychiatric Center will be displayed at the Schubert Theater in New Haven. Sixteen hand-painted miniature doors will be accompanied by stories of the artists about their experience with foster care and adoption.
  • The Brass City Mall in Waterbury will feature a special informational kiosk and “Heart Gallery” of photos of children looking for a home.
