National Adoption Day Proceedings

Montgomery County Probate Court is proud to announce that Judge Alice O. McCollum is participating in the National Adoption Day Proceedings on Friday, November 20, 2020.

November is National Adoption Month, a collective effort nationwide to raise awareness about the dire need for adoptive homes. “We are so pleased that Montgomery County Probate Court is keeping the tradition of Adoption Day alive despite the challenges of 2020,” said Debby Shaw, Interim Assistant Director for Montgomery County Children Services. “There will be fewer families in the building, but I’m sure the excitement will be just as great for our caseworkers. It’s heartwarming to see several of our kids being adopted on the same day, and the Court staff with their costumes and cheer help to make it one of the highlights of our year.”

Local sponsors for this event are:

 Butler Twp. Police Department Probate Court Employees
