November is National Adoption Month

Every child needs family. In Cuyahoga County there are nearly 2,300 children in care of the Division of Children and Family Services (DCFS). More than 850 of those children and teens are in permanent custody. Many of them need a forever family. In recognition of National Adoption Month, we’re highlighting ways you can learn more about becoming an adoptive parent.
