Children Currently Awaiting Adoption

Wonderful children awaiting adoption through the Department of Family Services.


AdameMeet Adame, a 12-year-old boy whose smile lights up the room.

Whether he’s riding his bike, going for a hike, or just exploring the great outdoors, Adame loves to be active. He enjoys building with Legos, watching Sponge Bob and being silly with others. Adame is adventurous and is always willing to try new things.

In addition to being an active young man, Adame is also incredibly caring. He thrives on building connections with others and desires to show people that he cares for them. This young man has a lot of love to give!

A great family for Adame will be committed to reassuring him of their support. The family will be able to provide some one-on-one support and will step alongside him to help navigate life’s challenges and decisions. He will need a family that can work with his team of providers to advocate for any ongoing concerns and to help further his development.

Are you interested in adoption? To inquire about this child, please complete our information request form. Thank you for your interest. DFS staff will review your information as a potential adoptive parent.
