Foster Parent Adoption
Many prospective adoptive parents take out ads in newspapers, have websites and hire agencies in their often fruitless search for children to adopt. They often overlook the large number of children (often older) who are in the foster care system and who are available for adoption. You can begin as a foster parent or foster parents for the child and see how things go. There usually are subsidies available in such adoptions and the Department of Social Services pays the cost of the adoption. Such adoptions fulfill a great need in the community and offer an opportunity to those who wish to bring children into their homes.
