If you have done the math on adoption and decided that it just isn’t going to work for you at this time, don’t give up hope. Foster care adoption in Mt Shasta CA has been a great choice for many other families in the area and it just might work well for you, as well. You will be able to provide much-needed care for children facing a difficult situation, and you might wind up calling one of those children your own when all is said and done.
Understanding the Process
It might go without saying, but foster care adoption in Mt Shasta CA works differently than a traditional adoption. In this case, you will become a foster parent and will provide care for children placed in your home. Not all of those children will become eligible for adoption – generally speaking, about half of all foster children wind up eligible for adoption. So, it may take a few placements before an opportunity arises, but you will be doing important work all along the way. Helping kids in your community and opening up the opportunity for adoption is a win-win situation.
