Florida #1 in Adoptions from Foster Care

"Florida is being rewarded for being the best state in the nation when it comes to adopting children from foster care."

"As a reward for leading the way, the state is receiving $9.75 million from the federal government in bonus funds, according to the Florida Department of Children and Families. That money is a huge chunk of the total amount the government is paying out, which is $35 million over 38 states and Puerto Rico."

"The DCF reports 3,777 children adopted from foster care in the most recent fiscal year, breaking the record set the year before of 3,674."
