Forever Home Celebration


    Thank you to everyone who made the
    2011 Forever Home Celebration a success!

    About the Event  

    Every child deserves a forever home. Over 100,000 children in the US, including 3,000 children in Ohio, are waiting for families to adopt them. Thousands of children are also available for adoption internationally.

    The National Center for Adoption Law & Policy, in partnership with Leadership Columbus, is proud to invite you to the Forever Home Adoption Celebration. Please join families and adoption professionals at COSI in Columbus for this adoption ‘expo’ and celebration on Saturday, June 4, 2011. The only event of its kind in Central Ohio, Forever Home celebrates success stories of families created through adoption and provides a platform for the entire adoption community to build adoption awareness.

    The National Center for Adoption Law and Policy, which is dedicated to improving adoption and child protection laws, policies, and practices, is very fortunate to have a team of professionals from Leadership Columbus working alongside us this year to make the 2011 Forever Home adoption celebration the best ever. Leadership Columbus develops informed and committed leaders through educational programs that empower participants with the skills, knowledge and other tools necessary to resolve the critical challenges and issues of its community.
