A Home for the Holidays

On December 20, 2020, CBS aired its 22nd annual “A Home for the Holidays” special to help the Foundation raise awareness of the importance of foster care adoption. The show was hosted by Gayle King and featured performances by Josh Groban, Meghan Trainor, Leslie Odom, Jr., Miranda Lambert and Andrea Bocelli.

The idea for “A Home for the Holidays” was pitched to CBS by the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and the Children’s Action Network to build awareness of the thousands of children who are waiting to be adopted from foster care. The annual primetime special shares stories of foster care adoption and has featured performances from some of America’s most popular music artists, including Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, Mariah Carey and more.

In between musical acts, the stories of amazing families brought together through foster care adoption are shared. Thousands of people have been inspired to seek more information on becoming an adoptive parent as a direct result of A Home for the Holidays.
