Adoption

Click here to search for an adoptable child.

Adopting a child through Franklin County Children Services can be a rewarding and heartfelt, lifelong experience, both for the adopted child and for the adopting parent.

  • A majority of the children waiting for loving homes are African-American and Caucasian children ages 10 and older.
  • Many of those who are waiting to be adopted are sibling groups who need to stay together, teenagers, and children who have special needs (including physical, emotional or mental disabilities).

Adoption today is quite different from years past. Family structures have changed to include divorced parents, single parents, and those with alternative life styles.

Franklin County Children Services seeks families or single adults from all backgrounds who are willing to love and share their homes with waiting children. Click here to search for an adoptable child.
