November is National Adoption Month, and several local organizations are working together to find kids their forever homes.
T.A. Walker Shined A Light on two organizations that work tirelessly to help create safe and positive opportunities for children and families.
Children’s Home Society of Florida says their number one challenge is finding families who are open to the kids in care needs that the kids. They say they are desperately looking for families who want to adopt kids who are teenagers, who might have a medical issue, sibling groups, kids who have behavioral challenges, or kids who need assistance with school.
“It takes a parent, a person that wants to and acknowledges that they need to make the changes in their lives to meet the kids needs versus expecting a child to adapt to their family,” said Amy Garvin-Liddell, who is the adoption program manager for Children’s Home Society of Florida.
