The children served by the Center are not the healthy babies usually associated with adoption. They are older, often teenagers who still hope for a family, and may be brothers and sisters who want to stay together. They may have emotional issues originating in their backgrounds of abuse and/or neglect. Some have physical or developmental challenges. All of them dream of having a permanent family that will always be there for them, a family to give them a lifetime of love. Here are the profiles of some of our children.
