Kindergarten kids friends arm around sitting smiling

In the past we typically placed children between the ages of 2-5. Although the number of those children we place each year still falls between 30 and 35, about a third are placed with kin, about a third are adopted by their foster families – leaving about a third who come to the adoption workers without a plan for permanency already in place. And the average age range now tends to be 5 years and up.
