There are children in state care ranging in age from 12-18 that need your help today!! Each different in their own way with one common thread that ties them, the need for a family.


There are children in state care ranging in age from 12-18 that need your help today!! Each different in their own way with one common thread that ties them, the need for a family. 

Here are just two of the many kids that need both temporary and permanent homes. Call 203-394-8506 for more information on the children and how you can help.

Matt is a beautiful 12 year old Caucasian and Hispanic boy. He loves to play and is described as a “joy to be a round.” Matt seeks and loves receiving attention from those who care for him. Matt is athletic with a great sense of humor and a great imagination! Despite his trauma history, Matt is very driven by relationships with others and is legally free for adoption. Matt would thrive in a two parent home that are devoted and have experience working with children with intellectual disabilities. He would most benefit from a home that can provide him with love, consistency, and structure.

Beth is a bright and friendly 13-year old girl. Despite having endured significant trauma, Beth is able to articulate that she longs to be in a family setting. Beth enjoys doing arts and crafts and loves animals. Beth also enjoys spending time with people that care about her. Beth is working hard on her treatment goals to become healthier, both mentally and emotionally. Beth continues to remain focused on the desire to transition to a family and has her heart set on having a place to call “home.” Beth would thrive with a dedicated, same sex female couple that will embrace and support her in a loving, safe, and structured environment.


Foster Adoptive Mission works in partnership with Department of Children and Families and private agencies to find temporary as well as permanent homes for CT children in state care. Close to 4000 children are in care across the state and we are looking for families of all kinds to step forward and help provide homes for these kids in crisis. The current need is for individuals willing to care for children between the ages of 12-18. The state will provide you the necessary training, monetary compensation and healthcare for the child, as well as a support system. If this is something you feel you can do please reach out to us for more information. 203-394-8506

Thank you for your response Jayne. We are hoping to let people see that children are children and that these are kids with perhaps the same interests as ones own kids or even themselves. In seeing this perhaps more people will open their hearts and homes to help give these kids a chance.

It is so great that you were able to break the mold. The system isn't perfect, but what in life is- Nothing! We are all responsible for our role in the process. What POSITIVE things are you doing to help change it for future children? I myself have adopted 4 kids on top of my 3, and testify at legislature to help change things all the time. I promote teen adoption, mentoring etc... I say this, not for a pat on the back, but to say, get involved to make a change. Its easy to sit back and moan and groan about how bad something is, get out there and make positive change. It's the toughest and best thing I have the privilege to do. God Bless you and I pray the very best for you in your future. D
