Adoption success story: The Weaver family

Forever Families: Weaver family

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - November is National Adoption Month. More than 6,000 children are in foster care in Alabama and each week we bring you their stories to help them find forever families.

Kim Weaver was a single woman who loved children and always worked in the school system. She never married but wanted to become a parent, so she decided to go through the foster care system to adopt.

She went on the Heart Gallery of Alabama website to view videos and photographs of available children. After finishing the process, she was matched with her son, Chris.

You can learn more about all of the children involved with Heart Gallery Alabama on the WBRC News app and at You can read more adoption and foster care success stories here.
