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 presents 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 will be featured every day during the month of November. Use the drop down menu below 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! We hope this year continues that success!
