In July our focus is on how to Adopt a Child:

Our adoptive parents provide permanent homes for children who can no longer live

with their birth families. For many children, adoption can be their only chance of

experiencing a loving, caring family life. Often foster parents choose to adopt their

foster child when it is not possible for the child to return home safely.

When a family is ready to adopt, Children’s Bureau provides the information,

services and support needed throughout the process and after the final papers are

signed. We have a high success rate of families staying together because of our

comprehensive approach to matching families with children, 24-hour support,

weekly social worker visits, support groups, mentors, post-adoption services and

more. Children’s Bureau does not charge a fee for an adoption.

Wonder if you qualify?

Adults who are single or married may qualify to become adoptive or foster parents.

You don’t need prior experience with parenting but you do need to be patient,

loving and willing to learn about the needs of the child in your care. Parents must

also be able to provide a safe and nurturing home that has adequate space and

complies with child safety regulations. Your income must be sufficient to meet

your family’s needs, however, financial assistance is provided to care for both

foster and adoptive children. The entire process, including the free home study and

various training takes about four months or can take longer depending on the type

of child a family desires.

Take the next step!
