Waiting Children

Every child deserves a family. 

In New York and around the world there are infants and children waiting for the love and stability of an adoptive family. The children listed here are in immediate need of an adoptive family. We take the privacy of children seriously. We don’t publicly use a child’s photo unless we have permission from their guardian.
