The Adoption Program strives to achieve and maintain adoptive placements for children in foster care whose parent's parental rights have been terminated. Children in the program may range in age from infant to 18 and the goal for the child must be adoption. Adoption assistance may be available to adoptive parents for services and support.

A home study will be completed for a foster parent who wishes to adopt a foster child into their home. In addition to foster care case management services, adoption family service workers recruit adoptive families through advertising, adoption parties, and collaboration with other agencies. Staff also supervise adoption placements, make referrals, prepare court reports and attend hearings.

For information on adoption services, please call (804)646-7475.
