Who are adoptive parents?
Adoptive parents are probably a lot like you!
They . . .
Who are the children waiting to be adopted?
They are of all ages and races; both male and female. The majority of the children are African-American and there are more boys then girls. We are especially looking for homes for sibling groups, which may be two or three children, and occasionally more. Many of the children have emotional needs, some have medical or other special needs.
Where are these children
Most children waiting to be adopted are living in foster homes. A few are in residential facilities. Cumberland County Department of Social Services maintains information on children within our county who are available for adoption and in need of a family. We also have access to information about children who are legally free for adoption around the state and out side of North Carolina
