Our Adoption Process

Foster to Adopt
(Adoption through Foster Care)

According to AdoptUsKids.org, there are approximately 400,000 kids in foster care and there are 117,000 waiting to be adopted. We know children thrive when placed with loving, stable families. When children enter our Foster Family program, our ultimate goal is to find them permanency, whether that’s with relatives, their foster parents, or to return to their birth home.

Adopting through the foster care system, also called foster to adopt, specializes in assisting foster families who wish to adopt through the foster care system. The approved foster family provide a waiting child with a permanent and loving home.

At EA Family Services, we offer a holistic approach to assist our foster to adopt families, who meet regulatory requirements, by supporting them in providing exceptional care to the youth placed in their home. We work with our foster to adopt families through the entire resource family approval process and help determine the best goodness-to-fit child for their home. Most adoptive families seeking a child are expected to foster a potential youth prior to an adoption placement being made.

Interested in our foster to adopt program? We’d love to help you become a forever family.
