Explore Adoption

During the month of November we celebrated adoption by featuring “30 Days of Amazing Children.” This campaign, an annual joint effort with the Governor’s Office of Adoption and Child Welfare and the Florida Department of Children and Families, shared stories from some of the 800+ Florida children who are currently waiting to be adopted. Many of these children are teens, sibling groups and children with special needs who have been in the child welfare system for an extended period of time.

We will continue this initiative through the month of December to keep adoption at the forefront during the holidays.
