For 16 years, families across the United States have celebrated National Adoption Day every November 19th. Since its inception, the project has help to achieve over 58,000 adoptions nationwide. The concept was a pet project of Dave Thomas, the founder of Wendy’s restaurant. Both Dave Thomas, and his daughter Wendy, after whom the restaurant chain is named, are adopted.
Each year, today is a day of reflection where couples look back on how adoption has changed their lives and helped their families to grow throughout the years. This year, The National Adoption Day Coalition is asking families with adopted children to tag their Instagram photos in their #onedayproject to show how adoption has affected their families. Since then, children and parents across the country have used the hashtag and have shared stories of how one kind act changed their lives forever.

This year, Managing Partner, Theresa Lyons, is honored to participate in this event by coordinating an adoption in Passaic County.
