What does the “perfect” adoptive family look like?
Our adoptive families are as diverse as the youth we serve. And, we like it that way! There is no such thing as the perfect adoptive family.
Is there a minimum amount of money a family needs to make to adopt?
No, there is no minimum amount of money a family must make. You do not have to be wealthy to adopt.
Do I have to own my home to adopt?
No, you do not have to own your home to adopt.
Can a single applicant adopt?
Absolutely. There are many youths who specifically request a single-parent household. A Family for Every Child regularly works with single adoptive parents.
Do I have to have to be a parent already to adopt?
No, you do not have to be a parent to adopt. In fact, A Family for Every Child will work with all applicants to aid them in establishing the trauma-informed parenting skills needed in adoption.
A Family for Every Child's Adoption Agency is committed to finding loving permanent homes for children and youth in foster care. We provide focused recruitment efforts for “hard to place” youth. Over 60% of the youth we serve identify as BIPOC and over 30% of the youth we serve identify as LGBTQIA+.
Our youth are:
- Over the age of six,
- Often belong to a sibling set, and
- Have one or more elevated behavioral, psychological, or physical support need.
We are excited to support you on your adoption journey. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us for additional information.
