Many Kids in Need of Adoption

Nearly 600 children of all ages in Los Angeles County are looking for  permanent and loving families to take them in. These kids cannot safely live with their birth families due to abuse, neglect or abandonment. Most have been shuttled time and  again from one temporary home to the next without ever finding that one family to call their own.

The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has never experienced such a shortage of foster families and is looking for adoptive families who want to bring these children into their lives. As part of their efforts, the department has created a website featuring available youngsters.

Many are siblings like Jeylyn, 12, who is described as a calm and obedient big brother to little sisters Kirsten and Keymani, both of whom love to play with dolls and jump rope.  There are others like Jasmine, a 14-year-old who has gone through many traumas in her young life and wishes she could find a permanent, loving home; then there is 16-year-old Jeremias, known as Jerry, who would love to have a positive role model and extra-curricular activities to help keep him grounded.

But all of the children have one thing in common: they are looking for love.
