What is Adoption?
Legal adoption means that the child becomes a member of your family and is no longer a part of the Foster Care System.
As an Adoptive Parent, you make all decisions for your adopted child, just as you would for your biological children.
Most adults who can provide a stable, loving home for a child or children can adopt. There is a great need for adoptive families who have the patience and ability to parent teenagers, large sibling groups and children with special needs.
To become an adoptive parent there are a few basic requirements that you need to meet:
There is almost no cost to adopt a Foster Child. The state of Florida will reimburse you up to $1,000 in adoption costs such as attorney fees and you are eligible for a federal tax credit in the year that you adopt.
Understanding the adoption process will help you to make the right choice for your family. Adoption is the gift of a lifetime and we would consider it a privilege to help you bring home the child that is the best fit for your family.
