Foster Care Adoption in California
If you want to grow your family differently, you can pursue foster care or foster care adoption in California. Foster care adoption is often considered by parents who feel called to adopt older children or a sibling group.
Foster care and foster care adoption involve working with the state of California, not a private adoption agency like American Adoptions. Also, foster care’s primary goal is to reunite foster children with their biological family. But, if reunification is not possible, you may be able to pursue adopting your foster children.
Although our team does not have the tools to support foster care adoptions, many other California professionals can help you on your journey:
- Family Connections Christian Adoptions
- California Kids Connection
- The Department of Social Services
California Adoption Home Study Services
Even if you decide to pursue a different kind of adoption or work with another adoption agency, American Adoptions is qualified to complete your home study.
