FAIRBANKS — November is Adoption Awareness Month in Alaska and around the nation.

Gov. Sean Parnell, in his proclamation naming the month in Alaska, wrote, “On average, over 1,800 children in Alaska are living in out-of-home care on a given day.”

“[A]doption is a way for these children to experience the security, encouragement, and love of a permanent family. During fiscal year 2012, 316 former foster children were formally adopted by Alaskan families,” the proclamation states.

Information about adoption in Alaska is available online from the Office of Children’s Services at
