 Recognizing and supporting the goals and ideals of National Adoption 
                                 Month.

Whereas there are millions of children worldwide awaiting permanent, safe, 
        loving homes;
Whereas there are presently more than 134,000 children in foster care homes in 
        the United States waiting to be adopted;
Whereas approximately 120,000 children in the United States are adopted each 
        year;
Whereas an estimated 1,000,000 children in the United States live with adoptive 
        parents;
Whereas roughly two to four percent of families in the United States include an 
        adopted child;
Whereas 6 in 10 Americans have had a personal experience with adoption, meaning 
        they, a family member, or a close friend was adopted, has adopted a 
        child, or has placed a child for adoption;
Whereas loving and nurturing families are formed every day when committed and 
        dedicated individuals make an important difference in the life of a 
        child through adoption; and
Whereas on November 7, 2003, the President proclaimed November 2003 as National 
        Adoption Month: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved, That the House of Representatives recognizes and supports 
the goals and ideals of National Adoption Month.
