Hutchinson finds who she'll feature on the floor each day through It's My Turn Now, a state website with nearly 200 listings for children and groups of siblings in search of adoptive homes. The site is "set up exactly like one for an animal shelter," Hutchinson said, with photos, ages, names and short descriptions of the kids' personalities: 15-year-old Jonathan loves the Georgia Bulldogs, 11-year-old Brian likes riding the school bus with his friends; and siblings D.J. and Johnny like to play basketball together. She uses that information to introduce each child to the House.
She tries to show children of all races and ages, and she looks for those who, statistically, have a harder time finding a home. Teenagers, African American boys, “medically fragile” children and groups of siblings are typically the hardest to place, Hutchinson said.
