The best of America is reflected in the many citizens who have adopted children as their own. Mothers and fathers are the most important influences in a child’s life, and children with caring, involved parents can better realize the full promise of America. Parents help their children thrive by encouraging them to aim high, work hard, and make good choices that will lead to healthy, satisfying lives. On November 18, loving families across America will celebrate National Adoption Day by finalizing their adoptions of children from foster care. This day will also raise awareness of the many children still waiting to be adopted and encourage more Americans to choose adoption. My Administration is committed to helping place children with caring families. Through the Collaboration to AdoptUsKids project at adoptuskids.org, we are working to provide guidance and support for parents considering adoption. We are also offering tax credits to ease the financial burden on adoptive families, and we are providing funding to help strengthen State adoption services through the Adoption Incentives Program and the Promoting Safe and Stable Families Program. Together, these efforts can help connect children with loving families and help provide greater hope and opportunity for America’s children. During National Adoption Month, we pay tribute to the parents who have opened their hearts and homes and helped provide love and stability for young people. By caring for the youngest members of our society, these families are helping our children grow into successful adults and building the future of our country. hsrobinson on PROD1PC76 with PROPOSALS6 NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W.

                Proclamation 8074 of October 30, 2006

                
National Adoption Month, 2006

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During National Adoption Month, we encourage the 
                adoption of young people in need, and we honor the 
                adoptive and foster families who have offered children 
                a loving and supportive home.

                The best of America is reflected in the many citizens 
                who have adopted children as their own. Mothers and 
                fathers are the most important influences in a child's 
                life, and children with caring, involved parents can 
                better realize the full promise of America. Parents 
                help their children thrive by encouraging them to aim 
                high, work hard, and make good choices that will lead 
                to healthy, satisfying lives. On November 18, loving 
                families across America will celebrate National 
                Adoption Day by finalizing their adoptions of children 
                from foster care. This day will also raise awareness of 
                the many children still waiting to be adopted and 
                encourage more Americans to choose adoption.

                My Administration is committed to helping place 
                children with caring families. Through the 
                Collaboration to AdoptUsKids project at 
                adoptuskids.org, we are working to provide guidance and 
                support for parents considering adoption. We are also 
                offering tax credits to ease the financial burden on 
                adoptive families, and we are providing funding to help 
                strengthen State adoption services through the Adoption 
                Incentives Program and the Promoting Safe and Stable 
                Families Program. Together, these efforts can help 
                connect children with loving families and help provide 
                greater hope and opportunity for America's children.

                During National Adoption Month, we pay tribute to the 
                parents who have opened their hearts and homes and 
                helped provide love and stability for young people. By 
                caring for the youngest members of our society, these 
                families are helping our children grow into successful 
                adults and building the future of our country.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim November 2006 as National 
                Adoption Month. I call upon all Americans to observe 
                this month with appropriate programs and activities to 
                honor adoptive families and to participate in efforts 
                to find permanent homes for waiting children.
