Who Are the Children Available for Adoption in New Mexico?
Children become available for adoption for a number of reasons, including neglect or abuse. While many children available for adoption are generally healthy, some may have physical or behavioral challenges due to their past. In these cases, CYFD will provide additional medical or psychological help. Some children may need to re-live parts of their childhood, with their new adoptive parents as their guides. Some children experience conflicting emotions or grief over the loss of important people in their lives. They may have brothers and sisters. They are every race, age, and religion. All of these children have different talents, hopes and dreams. And, all of them deserve a loving family.
Children waiting to be adopted are in foster homes, group homes, or treatment centers. They are all under the legal guardianship of the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department.
