Vivian Wilson says she felt the call to adopt even after having six biological children. She adopted her three daughters back in 2006.
"The love is there. And its just as genuine as if they were my biological children. I look at them as if they were. And I would go to the gamut with them," said Wilson.
Vivian began the process at One Church One Child, an agency that recruits adoptive families..
On any given day there are approximately eight hundred kids in foster care in Florida who need forever families. Out of those 800 kids, around 40 percent are African American.
"I think there's an opportunity through adoption to expand your family and to bless your home and to bless yourselves through the addition of children to your family through adoption. It's a wonderful life changing experience," said Dr. Arie Sailor, Executive Director of One Church One Child.
There is also a need for families willing to adopt minority infants.
Infant adoptions are through private agencies and have significant costs involved.
When adopting a child through DCF, there is often little or no expense.
"The children who are adopted out of foster care, their college is paid for if they attend the public colleges or universities in Florida," said Dr. Sailor.
Vivian says there have certainly been challenges, but the rewards far outweigh them.
"Would I go and adopt these three again, yes I would. Will I adopt again, I'm pretty sure I will," said Wilson.
