Foster Care Adoption
What is Foster Care Adoption?
Foster Care Adoption is the adoption of a child from the state foster care system.
Who are these children?
Children in our Foster Care Adoption program range in age from young children through teenagers and come from families of diverse backgrounds. What these children share is the need for a permanent home with a caring family like yours.
Boys & Girls Aid serves children waiting in foster care throughout the state. We recruit familes for these children from Multnomah, Washington, Clackamas, Yamhill, and Marion counties. These children are in the care of the state for any number of reasons. While it is always our first hope to see children reunited with their biological family, for these children, returning to their families is not possible, or not a safe and stable option. As a result, they have been released to the state for adoption.
Many of the children in our program are in foster care because of a history of abuse or neglect. These circumstances leave some children with cognitive, physical, or emotional challenges that require special care.
Who may adopt?
The children in our Foster Care Adoption program need understanding, stable adults to care for them. Boys & Girls Aid is proud to work with families of any race, ethnicity, religion, marital status or sexual orientation.
