Kids Who Are Waiting for Adoption
Children and teens who are waiting for a family are a lot like the kids you already know. Kids are resilient. Even when they’ve experienced toxic stress, like child abuse or neglect, they can overcome and reach their full potential with help from the community.
Adoption is child-focused. The goal of adoption is to find the right family for a child, rather than to find a child for a family. Most children who are adopted are adopted by their foster families. However, there are many more young people who are still waiting. Children of every age are waiting for a family, but the average age of a child on the Colorado Heart Gallery is 13.
