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.
