Who are New York's children awaiting adoption?

In New York State, no child may be adopted until the parental rights of the birth parents have been relinquished or terminated. This means that the child is free to be adopted. Typically, nearly 1,000 children are free for adoption and waiting for you, or someone like you, to offer them the permanent family life they have been denied. They need love and security. They need a permanent home. They need you.
