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.

Jullian is a smart and respectful young man. Julian wants to be part of a family where he has a younger sibling whom he can set a good example for and help raise and an older sibling who can teach him things and set a good example for him. He has a general interest in video games and wants to eventually join a video game tournament. He is a kid who really enjoys the outdoors, being creative and sports. Basketball is Jullian’s favorite sport to watch and play. Jullian loves music and his favorite genre of music is Country, Rap and Rock and he has hopes to soon attend a music concert. He would like to go to an American Ninja Jr gym. He can be affectionate and appreciates small things that are done for him. He is a resilient child who keeps an upbeat attitude despite his negative life experiences.

There are no limitations or special considerations that should be accounted for in finding permanency for Jullian, other than the adoptive parent will need to be trauma competent. He has no medical conditions or physical disabilities.
