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.

Isaiah is competitive and strong yet, gentle, and kindhearted. In line with his character, Isaiah shares the best of both worlds when it comes to his interests. When he isn’t tapping into his size and strength during a game of basketball in the driveway or side-yard football, he appreciates taking time to himself to listen to music, play video games and support his Cleveland sports teams, specifically the Cleveland Browns. Isaiah especially enjoys the summer months when he can spend the day swimming with friends or traveling to a nearby amusement and waterpark attraction.

Since being placed in a foster home that has introduced him to a new culture outside of his own, Isaiah has cultivated a delight in trying new food and will put your spice tolerance to the test! He has also learned to be more accepting and open-minded to the value of everyone’s differences. Too, he has found purpose in regularly attending church service on Sunday morning.

Isaiah continues to keep in close contact with his siblings through phone calls and visitation, which he has hope to maintain. Most of all, Isaiah is eager and looks forward to the day he has finally found a forever home and family of his own!
