This may be a silly question but it never hurts to ask..
Is there a way to adopt a child that's in foster care(where TPR has already taken place) but NOT do foster-to-adopt?
I have looked through our state's adoption listings but none are within that age range. And we are under the assumption that there are alot of children in need of families. My reasoning skills lead me to believe that of course not every child is posted too.
We are currently taking our MAPP classes but they have only went over what leads to why a child is placed in foster care.
We're hoping to adopt a child between the ages of 4-6. We would prefer not to foster-to-adopt. We will if we must but we just do not want to have to deal with the headaches, drama, and heartaches.
Is it possible to adopt a 4-6yr old from the foster care system without having to foster-to-adopt them??
