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.

My name is Lilliana, but I prefer to be called Lily. I’m currently in high school. After graduation, I plan to go to law school so that I can become a lawyer. I also want to become a professional model too. I love fashion and keeping up with the latest trends. I think it’s going to be so cool when I become a professional model and a lawyer. Who said you can’t be pretty and smart? My favorite hobbies are playing video games, listening to music, shopping, and hanging out with my friends. I love animals, especially cats. I also love playing with little kids who are just learning how to walk and talk. I think that I would make a great big sister.

I am very helpful with doing chores around. I make my bed every morning before I leave for school. I sort, wash, and fold my own laundry. I haven’t learned how to cook though, but that’s ok, I’m sure that you’ll be happy to teach me. If you don’t know how to cook that’s fine, we can go out to eat every day or learn how to cook together.

Now that you’ve heard a little about me, I hope you will consider learning more. I would love to have a family to call my own. A family that is kind, understanding, patient and filled with lots of love. I hope you’re willing to open your heart for one more person like me.
