Explore Adoption

During the month of November we celebrated National Adoption Month by featuring “30 Days of Amazing Children.” This campaign was 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.

We are extending this event through the month of December to showcase these amazing children. Please join us in this campaign to learn more about adoption and how you can make a difference in the life of a child.

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.
