Adoption
Overview

Adoption is a legal action that gives all parental rights to adoptive parents, making the adopted child a legal member of the new family with all the rights and privileges of a biological child.

Most adults who can provide a stable, loving home to a child can adopt. Married couples, single parents, working mothers, parents who already have children, people who live in apartments, and people of any religious faith, race, and education level will be considered. There is also a need for adoptive families who have the patience and ability to parent a teen or a large sibling group.

Over 58% of our adoptive placements are with foster parents who cared for the children initially as foster children first. Recruited families make up 22 percent of those who adopt, followed by relatives of the child, at 20 percent. However, it is not necessary to be a foster parent to adopt a foster child.
