November wears many hats. These 30 days aren’t only National Novel Writing Month, National Family Caregivers Month, and Native American Heritage Month – they’re also National Adoption Month, which culminates on Nov. 23 with National Adoption Day.

This year, Disney Channel will celebrate the occasion with a very special installment of Jessie, a sitcom about a young nanny (Debbie Ryan) caring for the kids of a big blended family. Three of her four young charges are adopted – including mischievous Luke (Cameron Boyce), who decides to seek information about his birth parents in the upcoming episode.

As Luke tells Jessie in this exclusive clip, “I don’t want to wait until I’m older to find out about my background.” Unfortunately, getting the goods on his birth family may turn out to be tougher than he thought.

Catch Jessie’s adoption episode Friday, Nov. 15, at 8:30 p.m. ET on Disney Channel.
