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.

April 2007
young man standing and smiling George is a very reserved and clever young man. He is in the 9th grade. George has a passion for playing football. He is on his school football team. In George’s spare time he enjoys playing video games, connecting with peers, and utilizing electronic devices. George also has a passion for cutting hair. George already has his career path set out for himself. He is eager to become involved in the sports arena and perhaps being a barber as a second profession.

When it comes to getting along in a family, he sometimes takes a while to warm up and be comfortable. This vigorous teenager needs an adoptive home where he can continue to work towards making positive strides. George enjoys receiving affection from those that he is bonded to, but he is not one that gives a lot of affection. He needs a family who will give him unconditional love and commitment.
