The children needing adoptive homes range in age from 0-18 years old. Georgia has a high number of children over age five, sibling groups, teenagers and special needs children. However, if your desire is to adopt a child from birth to 5 years old of any race or ethnicity with no physical, mental or emotional disabilities, you will be put on a waiting list. A Wait List adoptive home is an adoptive resource approved based on a pre-established inquiry date. There is no exact time frame for a family being on the Wait List as it is determined by their preference and when non-special needs children become available.
