28 Days of Amazing
African-American Children:
Explore Adoption!

In celebration of Black History month, Florida presents 28 Days of Amazing African-American Children: Explore Adoption! This initiative features an African American child, teenager or sibling group available for adoption every day in February. These amazing African American children and teenagers will be highlighted here on the Explore Adoption website with a combination of photos and biographies.

In addition, the Explore Adoption website will feature adoptive parents on the Family Stories page who have become parents to one or more children in foster care. These families have each experienced the joys of adoption.

Please join us as we recognize amazing African-American children, teenagers, and sibling groups who are dreaming of joining their forever family.
