Becoming an adoptive parent to a child or teen out of foster care means changing the direction of a life forever. Sharing your love, support and home can return equally as much joy to you.
When a child comes under the care and supervision of Family Support Services, and attempts to keep them safely with their family is not in their best interest, the courts may terminate parental rights. Children who become available for adoption are generally between 8 and 17 years old. While there are alternative foster care programs for those 18-23, everyone needs a family and help to navigate life no matter how old.
