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.

Brianna and Chelsia

Brianna and Chelsia are sweet, loving, caring, and kind sisters. Their bond is very strong, and they are always together. Brianna is the oldest and is protective of Chelsia, just as much as Chelsia is of Brianna. Brianna is the peacemaker and enjoys helping others. Chelsia is just as sweet, but just a little shy. Both Brianna and Chelsia love to sing, dance, play with their baby dolls, play outdoors, and watch movies.

They are looking forward to being with each other and having a family that will support their dreams and passions. These fun-loving sisters need a committed, patient, understanding, and loving family that will help them become successful adults.
