November is National Adoption Month

November is National Adoption Month, a time to celebrate families who open their homes and hearts to children available for adoption as well as an opportunity to introduce many of the children who are available for adoption through Florida’s child welfare system. The Explore Adoption site and the “30 Days of Amazing Children” campaign is provided by the Governor’s Office of Adoption and Child Welfare and the Florida Department of Children and Families to introduce Florida families to adoption and the children available for adoption through their own stories. At any given time as many as 800 children are available for adoption, and there is a particular need for adoptive homes for teens, sibling groups, and special needs children.

Florida's children come into foster care through no fault of their own.

When Florida's children in foster care are available for adoption, the legal rights of their biological parents have been terminated, and the children will never be returned to their birth parents.
