National Adoption Month

November is “Adoption Awareness Month” to encourage families to consider adopting foster children who are waiting for a permanent home. It is also a good opportunity to focus attention on the important role the New York State Office of Children and Family Services plays in the adoption process.

Adoptions are processed through local departments of social services (counties or the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) in NYC and authorized voluntary agencies but the state Office of Children and Family Services provides valuable resources to support adoptions from foster care within our state and beyond. Each OCFS regional office has an Adoption Specialist on staff to provide assistance in that part of the state.

Contact NYS Adoption Service 1-800-345-KIDS(5437) for more information.
