On any given day in the United States, there are approximately 400,000 children in the U.S. foster care system. Of those 400,000 children, approximately 124,000 are waiting to be adopted. There is always an urgent need for loving families to adopt U.S. kids.
Older Children, Sibling Groups, and Special Needs Children Waiting to be Adopted
Each year, approximately 20,000 youth age out of the foster care system when they turn 18 or 21. When kids that need to be adopted turn thirteen, the likelihood of adoption is 3%, and the percentages decrease from there. These children have to face adulthood alone without the support of a loving family. Older children are not as readily adopted as younger children. Read more about the need to adopt teenagers before they age out of the foster care system HERE. Additionally, the best case scenario is to keep brothers and sisters together, as the children have already experienced traumatic family loss. Special needs children also are less likely to be adopted as they often need extra care due to medical conditions or emotional disabilities. If you want to adopt U.S. kids and are able, please consider adopting children who are less likely to be adopted.
Adopt U.S. Kids From Any State
Building Arizona Families helps Arizona families adopt U.S. kids from around the country. As an Arizona licensed adoption agency, we serve Arizona families in the foster child adoption process. You can download helpful information about adopting foster children on our website HERE. Building Arizona Families’ program for foster child adoption is called the Forever Families program. Since 2004, we have helped hundreds of families change the lives and futures of children in foster care who desperately want to be loved and belong to a forever family.
State governments that oversee the children’s welfare recognize that children thrive in loving families, and so state agencies do their best to place children eligible for adoption with families that best match their needs. Adopting children from foster care does not require adoptive families to be foster care certified. Adoption approval is granted through the home study process, and Building Arizona Families can walk with your family every step of the way through the home study and adoption approval process.
