Foster Care Adoption
Adopt a child through foster care. Articles for mothers and fathers.
Welcome to Foster Care Adoption!
Thanks for visiting our website. It is our goal to educate the public about the foster care programs in their state and about the program as a whole. We have compiled a group of articles on various topics and will be adding more as time goes by.
We show foster care trends and statistics that has been gathered from National Foster Care Association data and the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services.
Please see our list of state resources for states A-K and states L-Z to find a link or phone number to get information on joining the foster care program in your state. Some states show the requirements online while others do not.
If you are just entering the program you should be aware of the pros and cons of foster care. We also have a related article that explains the differences of private party adoption (through an adoption service) and foster care adoption. Adoption services usually cost quite a bit, but they do have benefits.
