ADOPTION FROM
FOSTER CARE
Although the primary goal of foster care is always the reunification of the child with his/her birth family, this is sadly not always possible. In these cases the birth parent’s parental rights become terminated and the child is officially available for adoption.

DID YOU KNOW

4,000 Ohio foster children and teens

are currently waiting to be adopted.

The qualifications and licensing process for foster
parents and adoptive parents from foster care is the same, and the cost of adopting
a child or teen from
foster care is virtually nothing.
