More than 6,000 children are waiting to be adopted by a loving family here in Texas.
This week, Action 4 Sunrise will bring you all the information you need to know plus showcase pictures of children looking for a home.
Claudia Canales-Esquivel with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, stopped by our studios to explain.
He said he wants the public to understand that the requirements are not difficult.
He advised those who are interested attend an adoption meeting this Wednesday in Weslaco.
You will need to attend an information meeting in your area where you can discuss the scope and requirements of being a foster or adoptive parent.
You will get basic information and questions are welcome. Your local DFPS office will furnish you with this information if there are no informational meetings in your area.
You do not need an appointment. Find free foster care and adoption information meetings in your Texas area.
