Title

What ages of children are available--do you have any babies?

Answer

Most children waiting to be adopted are school-aged or brothers and sisters who need to stay together. Many have emotional disabilities; others have physical, mental or developmental disabilities. More than half of the children come from minority cultures.
Caucasian children under five years old may have severe medical disabilities or have older brothers and sisters. African American children, Latino children, and children of mixed heritage cover a wider age range and include healthy infants. The majority are boys.

Most children waiting for adoption live in foster or group homes because their parents were unable to care for them. Often, personal and family problems made it impossible for the parents to maintain a home for their children. Some of these children have been abused, neglected or abandoned. All need the love of a permanent family.
