DCFS Celebrates November as Adoption Awareness Month
A Record 771 Children Were Adopted Out of Foster Care Over the Past Year

DCFS will dedicate the month of November to honoring those who have made a difference in a child's life through adoption and to raising awareness in an effort to provide homes for about 140 children who remain in need of a permanent, adoptive home.
