“We certainly encourage everyone throughout the city of Tallahassee to please consider opening your hearts and homes to these children who not only need to be adopted, but more importantly need a great home with a great foster parent,” Gibson says.
In the Big Bend area, 24 children are currently looking for adoptive families. Last year, 103 local kids found forever homes.
