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.

Love is a social butterfly who will chat it up with anyone she meets. She is adventurous and enjoys being outside and on the go. Love is also very versatile. She is a “girly”, who likes doing her hair and lashes, but she is also a “tomboy” who enjoys playing football. In fact, she desires to be a football player one day. Love is also an excellent student who enjoys going to school as you can tell from the A and B grades that she achieves.

Love would benefit from a family who is patient, nurturing, loving, and committed to her. She needs a forever family that can provide her with unconditional love and attention on a lifelong basis. Could this be you?
