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.

young man standing and smiling

Keyontay is a young man with big dreams and vast aspirations. He can be very soft spoken and polite at times but also talkative if the subject matter is of interest to him. Like most young men his age, he enjoys social media, girls, rap music, video games, and sports.

He has participated in playing Basketball, Football and Track & Field, which includes hurdling and javelin. He is currently in the 9th grade and is doing well this school year, his favorite subject is math. He would ideally like a home with older children, and he wouldn’t mind having a dog too.
