TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

More than 500 foster children from around the state were adopted in November for National Adoption Month.

Parents who adopt foster kids receive a monthly adoption subsidy for the family, health benefits for the child, and free college tuition.

Roughly 750 foster children are still waiting for a family. The children most in need of homes are teens, sibling groups and children with special needs.

A newly redesigned website at www.adoptflorida.org highlights children and sibling groups in foster care each day of the month with photos and videos.

Last year, 3,250 children were adopted from Florida's foster care system.
