November is National Adoption Month and Eagle Village would like to celebrate it by highlighting two young men who are waiting for families to call their own.


It’s no coincidence that Adoption Month falls in November, the month of giving thanks. So many children across Michigan are able to say a prayer of thanks that they finally have a forever family to call their own. Agencies are thankful that to have foster and adoptive families contacting them throughout the year to inquire about making a difference in the lives of young people. Adoptive parents are thankful that they are able to give of themselves to make the life of a child a happy one.

Eagle Village would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the families they have worked with this year, both through foster care and adoption finalization. Their compassion and desire to help others has made more than a dozen lives better this year with several more adoptions due to finalize shortly after the first of the year.

Despite all the wonderful matches made, there are still so many teenagers out there waiting for a forever family to find them before they age out of the system.
