International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP is pleased to announce that the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption, in its annual Adoption-Friendly Workplace survey, has recognized the Firm as an Adoption Advocate. The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption is America’s only nonprofit public charity dedicated to finding homes for children in foster care.
For the 13th year, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption has compiled an annual list of the top adoption-friendly workplaces. Best Adoption-Friendly Workplaces are determined by an analysis of financial assistance and paid leave for families who adopt, based on surveys completed by employers. Adoption Advocate companies offer financial reimbursement, paid time off or both. Break-out lists are available noting America’s top 100 adoption-friendly employers, the top 10 by size, and the leaders in each industry.

More than 110,000 children in the U.S. foster care system are waiting to be adopted. Every year, more than 20,000 children in foster care age out of the system without families.
