In the last 20 years, there have been 12,500 foster children adopted within the state of Minnesota.
“With more children in our system in 2016, families adopted more foster children–868–than any other year over the last two decades,” states Emily Piper.
Foster care is much needed as children all over the world require a permanent home. “Right now, 766 foster children are waiting for families to adopt them” within the state of Minnesota. The Department of the State of Minnesota encourages those who are considering adoption from foster care to seriously consider doing so.
