About the children waiting to be adopted

The majority of the children waiting to be adopted are over the age of six. Those who await adoption under the age of six are usually part of a sibling group.

All of our children have experienced some level of abuse, neglect or loss. Despite all that has happened in their lives, most of the children in our permanent custody are just like any other children you know. They play, laugh and value friendships. Many are talented artists, musicians and athletes or may be gifted academically. Some may need specialized services to help them become more successful. They all have hopes and dreams for the future. They all deserve permanent, loving and committed families.

If you are interested in a specific child shown on our web site, please call 330-451-8789 to provide us with your contact information. Please note: We must receive your approved adoptive homestudy directly from your home agency to be considered for a waiting child. We regret that we cannot accept homestudies directly from prospective parents.

Information regarding our children can also be found on the Adopt US Kids website at www.adoptuskids.org.

For more information regarding The Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption and Wendy's Wonderful Kids Child-Focused Recruiters please visit www.davethomasfoundation.org.

A heart beside a child's name means he or she has been placed with a potential adoptive family.
