Fostering to Adopt

There are always a number of children looking for quality foster parents to provide a stable, loving environment while waiting to be reunited with family or transition into a forever home. To get started as a foster parent, you will need to apply and pass several background clearances. Your home will also be inspected as part of the process. Training is available as well as support throughout the process including, but not limited to, financial support, medical assistance, respite care, and other caseworker services. You can indicate your preferences for which children you would take into your home in terms of age, sex, etc.

Serving as a foster parent can also be an avenue to adoption if reunification is not possible. When working with a social service agency, they will handle all the paperwork and guide you through all the procedures to complete the adoption. This can alleviate the financial costs associated with other methods of adoption such as attorney fees or agency fees. Additionally, many of the services you receive as a foster parent may still be available to you post-adoption. For more information on how to become a foster parent, visit:
