Adoption Awards

Each year, we recognize individuals and organizations for their significant contributions to the adoption community in BC. They help us make a difference in the lives of waiting children and youth, and all adoptive families. They are some of our biggest advocates! 

Nominations are open for our 2017 Adoption Awards. Nominate today!
