Children Await Families

July 17, 2013

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA Can you imagine not having a family to love or a place to call home? Virginia Adopts is an initiative launched by Governor Bob McDonnell to match 1,000 children in foster care with 1,000 families.

"Of the four thousand children in Virginia's foster care system, about one thousand children are ready for, and eagerly awaiting, adoption,” McDonnell said. “Each of these children deserves a secure, stable home environment. Together, we can help these children find loving families and make Virginia a better place."

Numerous children who are currently in the care of the Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services are ready for adoption. 

“If you’ve ever thought about adopting a child, please consider one of the children right here in our community,” said Marsha Sharpe, director, Chesterfield-Colonial Heights Department of Social Services. “These children may enrich your life as much as you do theirs.”

For more information about children in our community who need families, call Lindsay Britt at 804-717-6391. For general information about the adoption initiative, visit VirginiaAdopts.Virginia.gov, or call the Adoption Hotline at 800-Do-Adopt. Information is also available on Twitter @VirginiaAdopts or on Facebook at Virginia Adopts.
