Who are the waiting children?
Adoption Home Foster Care
In Minnesota, there are currently 642 children waiting to be adopted. These children are residing in group homes, foster homes, residential treatment facilities, and shelters. Ramsey County has around 144 of those children waiting for a permanent home. Not all of the children are pictured on our website, either due to safety or Ramsey seeking another resource for them.
These children need an adoptive home and continue to wait for a special family like you. The children pictured are all considered SURVIVORS! They have all endured loss, abuse, grief and pain. Some have special needs, due to the behaviors and diagnosis they are labeled with. However, the diagnoses are not always a true reflection of the child, but survival skills and reasonable responses to unreasonable situations. When you read these stories and look at these faces remember, every child deserves a safe and loving home.
