Where We Finish, a Family Starts


Join us in Chicago on November 1 to
Walk the Magnificent Mile

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2016
When: 5:30 p.m.
Where: 435 N Michigan Avenue

The City of Chicago will declare November 1, 2016 Gift of Adoption Day. To celebrate, we’ll meet outside WGN’s Showcase Studio located at 435 N. Michigan Avenue, put on our GOA-issued hats, light up the night with purple glow-stick necklaces and leisurely walk together to Bar Toma (110 E. Pearson) talking about GOA all along the way. At Bar Toma, we’ll celebrate the GOA mission and hear from a grateful grant family while enjoying delicious pizza (provided), beer and wine (cash bar).



Gift of Adoption is celebrating National Adoption Awareness Month and its 20th anniversary in a big way. Throughout November, Gift of Adoption will host adoption awareness and celebration events in 30 communities across the country to recognize and celebrate families and the volunteers and donors who are committed to uniting more children with a forever family.

Each of the 30 events will feature one-mile walks to represent the final mile in a child’s adoption journey, followed by a community celebration. Gift of Adoption invites those touched by adoption and all who care about improving the lives of children to join us in the events.
