There are more than 100,000 children in the U.S. foster system waiting for permanent families. Many people consider adopting from foster care, but don’t know how to get started.
Adoption attorneys Denise M. Bierly, Esq., and Bobbie L. Rabuck, Esq., provide an overview of the foster adoption process and adoption subsidies, and answer your questions, including: How much does it cost to adopt from foster care? How long will it take? Can singles adopt? Can LGBT couples adopt? Am I too old to adopt? Can I adopt a baby or toddler from foster care? What is the home study? Can I adopt a child from a different state? Are all children in foster care “troubled”? Could foster adoption be right for me?
