   INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Gov. Mike Pence has issued a proclamation declaring the month of November as Adoption Month in the state of Indiana.
 
   Pence said Monday that the state hopes that by increasing awareness for adoption opportunities in Indiana, it can find permanent placements and successful adoptions for children.
 
   Currently, the Indiana Department of Child Services is recruiting adoptive families for nearly 100 children. More than 100,000 children in the U.S. foster care system are waiting to be adopted.
 
   The Indiana agency will hold an adoption fair Nov. 13 at the Statehouse. Representatives from DCS and more than a dozen adoption agencies and associations will provide information on both public and private adoptions, post-adoption services, how to afford adoption and other resources.
