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.
