During the month of November we celebrated National Adoption Month and featured “30 Days of Amazing Children.” This campaign run jointly by the Governor’s Office of Adoption and Child Welfare and the Florida Department of Children and Families throughout the month of November introduced Florida families to adoption and the children available for adoption using their own stories. At any given time as many as 800 children are available for adoption, and there is a particular need for adoptive homes for teens, sibling groups, and special needs children.
