Fayetteville Foster Care Adoption Agencies and Providers
While American Adoptions may not complete adoptions from the foster care system, we can certainly direct you to other agencies that do offer this helpful resource.
Sometimes, hopeful parents are not entirely sure about whether going through with a full adoption is going to be the best option for them in building their families. Fortunately, there is the option to be a foster parent, which allows you the opportunity to provide a home environment and family to children in the foster care system.
Becoming a foster parent can provide you with opportunities to connect with children who could potentially become a permanent part of your family, and also allows you the chance at parenting before an adoption may become final. This all can allow you to see how you would do as a future parent.
However, you must also be aware that most foster children are reunited with their biological family. This is the primary goal of foster care (rather than permanent placement with an adoptive family), which can be emotionally challenging for foster parents after a connection has been formed.
Fayetteville has a few agencies in the area to help you get connected and started in the foster care system as a hopeful parent:
