Hundreds of Children Waiting to Be Adopted
By Sentinel News Service
Published November 25, 2015

November is National Adoption Month

Adoption is a meaningful way for individuals and couples to fulfill their dream of parenting. There are approximately 64,000 children in foster care in California. Los Angeles County’s foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 450 foster children waiting to be connected to a family who will adopt. Children’s Bureau offers a comprehensive foster care and adoption program that brings families together for a lifetime. The agency is in need of resource families for children in foster care while reunifying with birth families or to provide legal permanency by adoption.

Children’s Bureau Resource Parents protect and nurture children, meet children’s developmental needs, support children’s relationships with their birth families and do all of this as a member of a professional team.   Qualifying families receive training, certification and support.

Discover if you have the willingness, ability and resources to take on the challenge of helping a child in need. A monthly information meeting is being held Saturday, Nov. 21 from 10:00 AM to Noon at Children’s Bureau, 1910 Magnolia Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90007. Directly following the Information Meeting, Wendy’s Wonderful Kids will be presenting children ready for adoption from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM.  Lunch will be provided. To R.S.V.P. or for more information, please call Maria Otero at 213.342.0168 or toll free at 800.730.3933. An information packet or application may also be requested by filling out a request form on the website at www.all4kids.org.
