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: Todd

Todd is a talkative and likeable teen who enjoys riding his bike, playing with Nerf guns and playing basketball.  He also enjoys spending time with others, making people happy and learning about science.  Todd looks forward to becoming part of a permanent family soon and becoming a crime scene investigator when he grows up.  He needs a loving adoptive family who will provide him with the support, attention and encouragement he needs to reach his goals.  Todd’s family will also need to support his desire to maintain a relationship with his sister, who has been planned for separately, as well as his need for ongoing therapy.
