We are all Adopted
"He predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will" -Ephesians 1:5 NIV
Yes, there is a difference between foster care and foster-to-adopt. Foster care provides children and teens that have been separated from their parents or guardians – usually because of abuse or neglect– with a temporary home. Sometimes, there is a potential to adopt your foster child. If you are interested in pursuing adoption through foster care, you can have a pre-adoptive status within our foster care agency.
In a foster-to-adopt placement, a child or teen is placed in a home before the child’s biological parents’ or guardians’ rights have been legally terminated. Many times, while a child is in a foster home, they become eligible for adoption. Because of their commitment to the children placed in their home,many of our families that have been certified for foster care, make the decision to adopt these children once the parental rights have been terminated. Because both the parent and the child have had time to build the relationship, both parties enter the adoption with a better sense of what to expect.
