Questions About the Foster Child Adoption Process?

Right now there are almost 14,000 children in Arizona’s foster care system. That is the number for just one state. In Arizona right now, there are almost 3,500 Arizona foster children whose parental rights have been severed and are immediately eligible for adoption. Again, this is the number for just one state. It is estimated that there are over 400,000 American children in foster care. Of those over 400,000 children, approximately one-fourth will have their parental rights severed as a result of unremedied abuse and/or neglect. There is an urgent need for loving forever families for these precious children who have already suffered so much and who have entered the foster care system through no fault of their own. If you live in Arizona and are interested in the foster child adoption process, you can legally bypass the foster to adopt AZ kids process, and adopt directly from the State of Arizona. Building Arizona Families would love to give you the information you need.

Many families interested in adopting from foster care believe that foster to adopt AZ regulations require prospective adoptive parents to become foster parents prior to adoption of a foster child. This is not the case – there is NO foster to adopt AZ regulation that requires fostering first. It is possible to directly adopt Arizona foster children whose parental rights have already been severed fairly quickly, as the children are currently living in foster or group homes without a permanent place to live. Building Arizona Families can also help you search for foster children outside of Arizona. As long as you are an Arizona resident, we can help you with the foster child adoption process.

Many families who want to adopt Arizona foster children ask about the foster child adoption cost as well as the home study cost which is included in the adoption process. Building Arizona Families has information about these questions on our website HERE.   We also offer onsite seminars to discuss how to adopt Arizona foster children, details about the foster child adoption process, and the costs involved including home study cost.

Thank you for considering opening your heart and home to the adoption of foster children. We would love for you to call Building Arizona Families, an Arizona licensed adoption agency specializing in helping families adopt Arizona foster children.  Call Ixcel Baca, Program Manager at (623) 696-9537, or e-mail her.  She would be happy to set up a private meeting and answer any questions you have or personally take you through the online seminar. You can also find more information about the types of adoption, the child adoption process, and adoption cost on their website HERE.

Thousands of Arizona Foster Children Are Hoping for Forever Families

There are thousands of foster children in Arizona whose parental rights have been severed. This means that these precious children are legally available for adoption. Additionally, Arizona families interested in helping vulnerable Arizona foster children who have already suffered so much can consider the foster to adopt AZ children process. The foster to adopt AZ children process is not required, however, and foster children whose parental rights have been severed are available for direct adoption.

Adopting foster children is a wonderful way to grow a forever family for many reasons. First and foremost, these precious children deserve to be safe, loved, and have a bright future. No child in America should grow up in foster care – children flourish in families. Secondly, adoption from foster care is often faster and far less expensive than private adoption. And of course the best reason, is that it will change your family and the child’s life forever!

Building Arizona Families specializes in helping Arizona families adopt foster children through our Forever Families U.S. Adoption Program. As a licensed adoption agency, we have been serving prospective adoptive families since 2004. We are located in Phoenix, AZ but are able to provide adoptive services of foster children from every state, not just Arizona. The adoptive family must be located in Arizona, but the child is not required to be a foster child in Arizona.

ADOPT ARIZONA FOSTER CHILDREN THROUGH THE BUILDING ARIZONA FAMILIES FOREVER FAMILIES U.S. PROGRAM

As an accredited adoption agency, one of our goals is to help people adopt Arizona foster children.  We believe every child should grow up in a loving family. Building Arizona Families connects Arizona foster children who are hoping and praying for forever families with loving Arizona families who are hoping and praying for children of their own!

THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF ARIZONA FOSTER CHILDREN WAITING TO BE LOVED IN FOREVER FAMILIES

Did you know that right now in there are thousands of Arizona foster children  whose parental rights have been severed?  This means you can directly adopt Arizona foster children  without the need to become a foster parent first. These precious children need loving families right now. The longer they remain in foster care, the greater risk there is of negative impacts like PTSD, poor academic outcomes, and poor self esteem to name a few. The average foster child moves homes two to three times per year, and every child deserves a safe, stable home environment to thrive in.

DIRECT ADOPTION FROM FOSTER CARE PROVIDES CHOICE TO PROSPECTIVE PARENTS

One of the benefits for those who choose to adopt Arizona foster children  whose parental rights are already severed is that adoptive families are able to choose the gender, age, and ethnicity of the child(ren) they adopt. Adoptive families can also choose sibling groups as well.

ADOPTION OF FOSTER CHILDREN IS LESS EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER TYPES OF ADOPTION

Adopting directly from foster care is also substantially less expensive than private adoption. The state of Arizona covers some of the adoption costs involved because foster children are in the custody of the state for care.
