On November 19, the Bar Association of Baltimore City will sponsor, in conjunction with the Circuit Court for Baltimore City, its 11th Annual National Adoption Day Celebration. This event not only celebrates the children whose adoptions are finalized that day, but it is part of the national effort to raise awareness of the more than 100,000 children in foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families. This event will be held in the Circuit Court for Baltimore City’s Ceremonial Courtroom 400, Clarence Mitchell, Jr. Courthouse on Saturday, November 19, 2016, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The adoption ceremony lasts from approximately 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The fun then begins when the 200+ attendees come to Kaplan Court (2nd floor) to enjoy all of the activities, including face painting, temporary tattoos, balloon art, gifts for the children, and a dessert reception.
