November is National Adoption Awareness Month and given how much our society looks to celebrities to set trends, we hope one that catches on quickly is the need for more people to adopt.

According to the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System, there were a total of 427,910 children in foster care as of the September 30, 2015 fiscal year, and of the 269, 509 that entered foster care that year, 23% (60, 733) were African American.

These Black celebrities are helping to reduce those numbers, having adopted children by various means and under various circumstances. Check out their stories on the next few pages.
