Pompano Beach Foster Care Agencies
Although American Adoptions specializes in domestic infant adoption, we understand and value the opportunity foster care provides as another option to expand your family.

Before a couple can become adoptive parents, they’ll need a home study. Because American Adoptions is licensed in Florida, we have everything you need to complete this important step — even if you’re working with another agency for placement. This is usually one of the lengthier portions of the adoption process, as it includes home visits, background checks, interviews and more. Because of this, you are encouraged to begin the process as soon as possible to avoid any delays.
