Whenever I begin a new class of people training to become foster parents, there are always a few couples or singles in the group interested in fostering to adopt. They usually have many questions and are filled with excitement about adding to their family. Foster to adopt is not a quick route, but it is probably the least expensive one. There is such a great need as there are thousands of kids in foster care in need of homes within the U.S.
One of the main focuses during National Adoption Month, which is November, is the adoption of children in foster care. That is how our three boys joined our family, through foster care adoption. November is coming quickly. Is 2008 the year you decide to add to your family through foster care? November 5th is the date we finalized our adoption. Huh. I just thought of that.
