The Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS) through the local County Department of Family and Children Services provides Adoption Services based on the premise that a permanent, safe home is the right of every child. All children have a right to a family and a home of his/her own.  When a permanent home is not provided by the birth family and permanent, legal separation from them is necessary, adoption services shall be provided.

Wednesday’s Child Atlanta

In partnership with Georgia DFCS and Fox 5 Atlanta, Wednesday’s Child is a successful program that is part of the Freddie Mac Foundation’s national campaign to increase the number of adoptions of children in foster care. The children featured on Wednesday’s Child are those in the most urgent need of a home. Many of these children are over the age of eight and have been in the foster care system for some time and desperately need a permanent place to call home.


Weekly Feature: Jaden

Jaden is an active and outdoorsy boy who loves to fish, hike and explore. He also likes to read, play Pokemon and play video games. Jaden’s favorite activities, though, are playing, watching and talking about sports, especially when it involves his beloved Braves. This football/basketball/baseball player works very hard when motivated like when he is playing baseball in the Miracle League, which he loves. Jaden needs a loving and encouraging adoptive family who can provide him with the structure, support and supervision he needs to continue to thrive. His family will also need to support his desire to maintain a relationship with his foster parents, who have been a big influence on his success, as well as his need for ongoing therapy and tutoring, which address his developmental delays.
