Local Adoption Day

  • Edmund D. Edelman Children's Court

We are an auxiliary of the registered 501(c)3 charity organization, the Alliance for Children's Rights. Every year, they facilitate thousands of adoptions in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Adoption Day Program started in 1997 as a partnership between the Alliance, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, the Department of Children and Family Services and Public Counsel. The innovative program began as a solution to the overwhelming number of foster child adoptions stuck in a backlog. Together, they cleared the backlog and in doing so, established a national model for performing adoptions. Since 2000, National Adoption Day has joined 50,000 children with permanent families.
