Nearly 1,400 kids have been adopted from government care in the past five years, but there is still an ongoing need for more adoptive families - particularly, Indigenous families and families willing to take on larger sibling groups, teens, or children with significant special needs, according to the AFABC.

"Adoption is one important way we can connect young people with the care and support that loving adults are eager to provide," said Children and Family Development Minister Katrine Conroy.
