World Adoption Day 2023

World Adoption Day

Cook Children’s Infusion Center employees celebrated World Adoption Day on Nov. 9 by wearing special t-shirts and joining others across the globe in drawing a smiley face on their hands and sharing photos.

World Adoption Day is a day to “lift up all voices in the adoption community, to share your story, to reflect on your adoption journey, and to connect with those touched by adoption," according to WorldAdoptionDay.org.
