Adoptable Kids

Adopting a child can be a rewarding and lifechanging experience. The Division of Children and Family Services is looking for families or single adults from all backgrounds who want to give a safe, loving, permanent home to children who need a family.

  • Most children waiting for adoption are African American and Caucasian children ages 10 and older.
  • Many are sibling groups who need to stay together, teenagers, or children who have special needs (including physical, emotional or mental disabilities).
  • Adoptive families can include relatives, single parents, and same sex couples.

Please take a look at our wonderful Adoptable Kids.

  • If you are a licensed Foster Caregiver or approved Adoptive Family requesting information about a specific child submit an inquiry and we’ll follow up with you.
  • If you are not a licensed Foster Caregiver or approved Adoptive Family please submit this interest form and we’ll get back to you.

Bailey and Isabella

May 2007 and January 2010
two sisters standing and smiling

Bailey and Isabella are ambitious and fun-loving teenagers with hearts full of hope. They are close and love one another very much, but also enjoy their own interests. They look forward to being with each other and having a family who will support their dreams and passions. Both girls enjoy spending time watching videos and hanging out with friends. And they enjoy chatting with friends on electronic devices.

Bailey is the oldest and she tries to look out and protect her younger sister, Isabella. Bailey and Isabella are bold and adventurous — Bailey loves to chat with others. More reserved Isabella takes a little time to open up. Bailey and Isabella need of a family who can provide them each with one-on-one attention and support their interests.
