Can I Adopt My Foster Child?

By

Question: Can I Adopt My Foster Child?
Answer: Yes! Foster parents being unable to adopt their foster children is a thing of the past. Today we are more aware of the importance of bonds and attachment between children and their care givers. Of course each case is different and if a relative placement is possible the state could prefer to pursue that. For more information check out your state's web site on foster care.
