November is National Adoption Month. During the month we will be celebrating adoption by featuring “30 Days of Amazing Children.” This campaign is a joint effort by the Governor’s Office of Adoption and Child Welfare and the Florida Department of Children and Families.

At any given time there are as many as 800 children available for adoption, and there is a particular need for adoptive homes for teens, sibling groups, and special needs children.

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.
