Alabamians continuously demonstrate their giving nature – evidenced again when 676 waiting children were adopted through the state's adoption system last year. 

That broke a record set the year before. 

Nearly 1,100 children have been given new permanent homes the past two years – an impressive outpouring of giving people throughout the state. 

The majority of those people were foster parents and that has created a need for more foster parents. 

There are roughly 7,000 children in the foster care system currently and 455 who are waiting on an adoption. 

We encourage all who can be a foster or adoptive parent to give it consideration. 

We applaud all who already are or have been foster or adoptive parents. 

Your contributions to our community are considerable and most appreciated!
