Meet the Children
Because every child is unique and special, we carefully consider several factors when matching with an adoptive family. We look at the child's needs, personality and interests as well as the adoptive family's strengths, personality, interests and activities. We also look at the family's ability to support the child in developing a healthy sense of cultural and racial belonging as he or she grows. The adoptive family's commitment to maintaining and encouraging birth family connections is also considered.
Many of our children and youth are matched quickly with local waiting families, but sometimes children are profiled more broadly to find the right family. As part of this broad search for a family, children may choose to have their adoption profile and video shared at adoption events and online.
This website offers an opportunity to find out about some of our waiting children.
The children’s profile videos were produced in part with financial support from the Family & Children’s Services Foundation.
