Would you like to foster or adopt?


Today, many children in Oklahoma’s foster care system need an adoptive family. If not adopted, these children will enter adulthood without a permanent family connection. And, we always need more foster homes.

Hot Car Dangers

 

A child’s body temperature rises at a rate at least three times faster than an adult’s. Vehicles heat up quickly. If it’s 85 degrees outside, a car can heat to 120 degrees in just 30 minutes. Remember, it is now a misdemeanor in Oklahoma to leave a child 6 years old or younger unattended in a motor vehicle.
