Foster Care Adoption in Iowa
Infant adoption is a great way to start your family, but it’s not the only way. If you’re open to adopting an older child or sibling group, foster care adoption in Iowa could be the right choice for you.
Foster care adoption in Iowa is a great way to give a waiting child a loving home, but the process is not the same as infant adoption.

The goal of foster care is the reunite the child with their biological family in a safe and stable environment.
However, there are many situations where the child is not able to return to their biological family, and they will be in need of a loving family through adoption.
American Adoptions is a domestic adoption agency, which means we aren’t involved in foster care, but here are a few local professionals who can help:
