Florida contracts with community based care agencies and other local partners to provide adoption services by matching children in foster care available for adoption with families willing to open their homes and hearts to children needing a "forever family." The adoption specialists who work for these local agencies are experts in helping a child and family find each other, guiding them through the adoption process, and providing them with information and support.
