Leslie Spoltore, one of our partners in our Wilmington office, posted President Barack Obama’s proclamation making November National Adoption Month. Family law is an area which often deals with difficult issues and outcomes where neither side feels like they’ve won even if the outcome is in their favor.

Adoptions, on the other hand, can be an extremely positive event where all those involved – the adoptive parents, the judge, the clerks at the Courthouse – all have a single-minded purpose of creating a new family and permanent family for a child. While some adoptions can become difficult due to competing interests of various adults, the overwhelming majority of them arise from two parents wanting to create a better life for child.

The full text of the President’s proclamation can be found at our Delaware Trial Practice Blog.
