Gotcha day is a celebration of the day a family adopts a child. Some families choose to celebrate this anniversary on the day of the adoption; others celebrate the day the adoption was finalized in court.
Lighting candles in honor of those who made adoption possible. Family activities such as a picnic or a day at an amusement park. Buying a gift that represents the legacy of the child’s birth, such as the country in which the child was born. Display or hang the flag of the child’s country of birth in the front yard.
Adoption Day, also referred to as “Adoption Day”, has become a tradition in foster families since the official adoption. For many families and adoptees, this day is a celebration of the end of a very long and turbulent journey of becoming a family.
