Month-long effort to find homes for Delaware foster kids

Month-long effort to find homes for Delaware foster kids is now underway.

As part of National Adoption Month, the Delaware Children’s Department is profiling kids in foster care in the state in hopes of finding permanent homes for them.  Right now, there are 90 children in foster care in Delaware.  Less then half of them will be adopted by relatives or their foster families, which means about 50 are waiting for adoption.  The Children’s Department is partnering with public and private adoption agencies, Family Court and the Child Placement Review Board to find potential adoptive parents for these children.  Profiles of the children are posted in the Heart Gallery on the Children’s Department website.
