Adoptions at an all Time High, State Leaders Aim To Beat the New Record

July 2nd, 2008 by flanews

Following up on a record setting adoption year, state leaders launched a campaign aimed at beating the new record. There were more than 3,500 adoptions in Florida last year. The Governor launched an advertising campaign Wednesday aimed at finding more children homes. The video ads will run in both English and Spanish. The ads are aimed at finding homes for the harder to place kids, like teenagers. Sixteen year-old Justin Crews was adopted two years ago. Crews said there are advantages to adopting older children.

“I encourage them to adopt older kids also. I mean just like everyone
else they need a home to. They’re older in age that makes them mature
and you can still teach them and shape them into the child they can be
today,” said Crews.

There are more than a thousand kids in Florida up for adoption.
