All children listed at Photolisting.Adoption.com are available for adoption. Some of the children live in foster care or group homes throughout the United States. Some of the children live in orphanages in countries around the world. Most of these children have special needs. Many of of them are over the age of 7, and some are much older. Most have physical, emotional, mental and/or learning disabilities. Many are sibling groups, which means they have brothers or sisters who need to be in homes together. All of them need loving, permanent homes.
In all states you must have a completed homestudy before you can adopt any of these children. For a directory of agencies that can help you with a homestudy, visit Directory.Adoption.com, or contact the agency that has listed the child at Photolisting.Adoption.com.
