November is Adoption Awareness Month Featured

Press release

 

OKLAHOMA CITY - November is National Adoption Awareness Month. In Oklahoma, there are over 600 children and youth in foster care who are waiting for their forever families.

 

“No child should have to grow up without a family,” said Tricia Howell, Deputy Director for Foster Care and Adoptions.

 

Each November, National Adoption Month brings awareness to the needs of children and youth waiting for their permanent families. Children need and deserve to be in families. DHS needs families who are open-minded and willing to take sibling groups, teens and kids with special needs. These are the children who are hardest to place and who need special families willing to meet them where they are. By saying yes to adoption, families and individuals can create the stable family connections that will set the stage for a successful adulthood for children and youth in foster care.

 

“As Oklahomans, we know our children are our most precious resource, which is reflected through the wonderful families who step up to adopt. A loving and stable family provides the nurturing and healing that will forever change not only the child but the family as well,” said Howell.

 

Last fiscal year, DHS finalized adoptions for 2,577 children and youth, giving them a permanent home. This was the highest number of adoptions in a single fiscal year since 1998.

 

For more information about how to adopt through DHS or become a foster parent, call 800-376-9729 or visit https://okfosters.org/.
