November is Adoption Awareness Month

2018 Adoption Awareness Month banner

Join us in celebrating our adoptive families and all those who support them!

There are currently 200 Fairfax County children in foster care. The Foster Care and Adoption Program offers temporary foster homes for these children and services to help their families. When a child cannot return home safely, we look for relatives who want to care for the child, and are legally eligible to do so. Sometimes, however, a relative can’t be identified or is unable to care for the child. For these children, we seek a permanent home through adoption.

Fairfax County is sponsoring a series of events to celebrate Adoption Awareness Month.
