State Adoption in Vermont

When children can't safely reunify with their parents, we first pursue adoption with people they're connected to (e.g., relatives, friends, and foster parents). Sometimes, however, new families need to be found.


The need for adoptive parents

On any given day in Vermont, there are about 60 children waiting in foster care for families to adopt them.
