Foster Care Adoption in Louisiana
There’s more than one way to start your Louisiana adoption. If you’re looking to adopt an older child or a sibling group, then foster care adoption in Louisiana may be the better option for you.
Foster care and foster care adoption involve a much different process than domestic infant adoption in Louisiana. For the foster care process, you will work with the state and you’ll learn that the main goal of most foster care situations is reunifying the child with their biological family.
However, it’s also important to know that there are many situations where a child in foster care becomes eligible for adoption, so they need to experience a loving family through a permanent placement.
American Adoptions doesn’t offer the tools and resources needed to facilitate a foster care adoption in Louisiana, but you can contact the Department of Children and Family Services in your region to get started.
Louisiana Adoption Home Study Services
In order to become eligible to adopt a child in Louisiana, every family is required to complete a Louisiana adoption home study.
