National Adoption Month


Each November, we recognize the important role that adoption has played in the lives of children and families in our community and we rededicate ourselves to ensuring every child can find their forever family. Currently, there are over 100,000 foster children in the United States available for adoption without an identified family to adopt them - over 800 of those reside in Florida. Please review our Adoption resources below:
