November is National Adoption Month

Cuyahoga County currently has close to 600 children in permanent custody. Over 200 of those children are living in foster homes that are in the process of adopting them. The other children are available for adoption, and range in age from 0-18. The County is actively recruiting adoptive families for these children. To date, 98 children have been adopted in Cuyahoga County this year. Of those, 32 children had been in County custody for five years or more. If you or anyone you know is interested in adopting a child or is curious about what it takes, please visit to see adoptable children and find more information on adoption requirements and processes.
