November 2023
November is National Adoption Month and on Friday, 21 children officially joined their new "forever families" to commemorate Harris County Adoption Day. Adoption ceremonies were held at the Harris County Juvenile Justice Center. They captured emotional moments as adoptive parents showed how willing they were to open their hearts and homes for children ranging in age from newborn babies to teens. Texas Department of Family and Protective Services says that in the Greater Houston area, there are currently 570 children waiting to find permanent adoptive homes. A total of 385 of those children are in Harris County. Of the children available for adoption statewide, more than half are older children and teens ages 10-17.
