November is National Adoption Month


November is National Adoption Month, and a time to put the spotlight on youth under agency care who are seeking adoptive homes. It is particularly important to recognize the older children, sibling groups and those with special needs who long await forever families who will give them stability, security and a sense of belonging. Franklin County Children Services seeks families or single adults from all backgrounds who are willing to love and share their homes with waiting children.

FCCS will celebrate National Adoption Day on November 14 by finalizing the adoptions of several children at Franklin County Probate Court.
