Are you hoping to adopt a young child from foster care? Then you might find the response to the following question to be particularly relevant to your situation:
“I hear people say that there are soooo many kids in the foster care system who need a home, but when I ask if I can adopt a child 0-8 years old, the county says they don’t have any adoptable kids that young. Which one is true? I’m a good person and all I want to do is provide a home for a child that needs one and I keep getting stonewalled! So frustrating!”
Is this a question you’ve had as well?
