Thinking About Adoption?

Between 60-65% of children in state care are adopted by their Foster Parents.

Did you know that between 60-65% of the foster children in care who become eligible for adoption are adopted by their Foster Parents? That’s right, adopting through DFCS is possible, and AFPAG supports its Foster Parents in their efforts to adopt.

How Can I Adopt?

There are children in Georgia who need to be adopted by loving parents. Many of them have special needs, which may be minor, not life threatening. Many are part of sibling groups, which we all want to keep together if at all possible. So, open your heart and home to these precious children. There may be a child waiting for you! Check this site often for adoption updates.


Call your local county Department of Family and Children’s Services and tell them you’re interested in adoption.
