National Adoption Month

Every November individuals, families, organizations, and agencies across Florida engage in activities designed to raise awareness about the adoption of children and youth from foster care. This year, Florida presented 30 Days of Amazing Children: Explore Adoption! - a statewide initiative featuring children in foster care who dream of being adopted by permanent, loving, forever families. A unique "Amazing Child" available for adoption in Florida were featured every day during the month of November. Use the drop down menu above for "National Adoption Month" to meet all of the featured children. Since 2010, over 25% of the children featured during 30 Days of Amazing Children have either been adopted or matched with a family!

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.
