Adopt Foster Children from Foster Care in Arizona or Around the U.S.

There are over 3,000 children in foster care in Arizona alone that are legally eligible to be adopted right now. As heartbreaking as it is, these children’s biological parents no longer have parental rights. These children desperately need a family to offer them support, care, love, and, more importantly, a forever home. Married couples, families, and even single applicants can be eligible to adopt foster children who are eagerly waiting for a family. A foster child’s life is restored when they are welcomed into a safe, loving, and permanent home with their forever family.

Building Arizona Families Encourages Us to Adopt Arizona Foster Children

Are you wondering if you are eligible to adopt children from Arizona foster care? To adopt children from foster care in Arizona or around the U.S., applicants need to be living in Arizona and found legally eligible to adopt a child or teen in foster care. Applicants do not need to be foster care certified to adopt foster children in Arizona but certified to adopt through a home study. For approximately six months, a child will be welcomed into the adoptive home before being legally adopted. Learn more about the requirements to adopt Arizona foster children HERE.

The majority of foster children are five years of age or older. There are also sibling groups or children who have a higher level of need. All children in the foster system deserve to feel the stability and love of a forever family. Download our Adopting Foster Children Information Guide HERE.

We Need Men and Women to Make a Difference in the Lives of Children in Arizona and Around the United States

Foster children need reliable and safe adults to help turn their life away from loneliness, abuse, and/or neglect. Because of the circumstances children in foster care may experience daily, foster children struggle to form crucial bonds with safe and supportive adults. Becoming a forever parent to a foster child, who no longer has a family of their own, will fill them purpose and begin to instill trust and important values into their lives.

Building Arizona Families would be honored to walk with you on your journey to adopt foster children in Arizona. As a non-profit, licensed Arizona adoption agency, we have helped families with the adoption process since 2004. Please reach out to Ixcel Baca, Program Manager for the Forever Families foster adoption program at Building Arizona Families, by phone at 623-696-9537 and by e-mail Building Arizona Families also offers free adoption information seminars online, be sure to reach out to Ixcel for upcoming seminar dates and times!

There is a Loving Home for All Foster Children Needing a Forever Family

Over 400,000 children face life with uncertainty, without their family, and in unfortunate circumstances out of their control. In the United States, over 400,000 foster children are experiencing difficulties in their life that youth should never have to experience. These children are used to a life with frequent moves between foster homes and even changing schools with the moves and desperately need a forever family to bless them with a family that loves and cares for them. 

A forever home can drastically change a foster child’s life when raised in a home with love, structure, and permanency. Some foster care children don’t know what it’s like to have their own room or celebrate holidays with a family. In Arizona, over 2,600 children are legally free and ready to be adopted now. Building Arizona Families walks alongside adoptive families who want to welcome a foster child into their home. To learn more about the Forever Families U.S. Adoption program, please visit us HERE

Children Around the U.S. are Waiting for Someone to Love Them as Family

When a child in foster care is legally free, the state has terminated their birth parents’ rights. These children are wards of the state with no legal parents. Foster children in Arizona that are legally free and waiting for a family in foster care have lost so much in their short life. The loss of family, friends, and home can be detrimental for a child experiencing these circumstances at such a young age, causing issues that may follow them into adulthood. Young children in foster care need the love and safety during this crucial developmental period. Foster children need a safe place offering positive experiences during the healing process for the child. 

Families who want to adopt a foster child or a sibling group can continue their adoption journey without becoming foster certified. If your family feels the need to open your home to a loving child in desperate need of a forever family, there is a faster adoption process available. Building Arizona Families offers an exciting program for adoptive families in Arizona, which helps families adopt foster children. Children around the U.S. that are found legally eligible for adoption can be placed directly with an adoptive family in Arizona. Many of these children are five years of age or older. Younger children may be available but are mainly in sibling groups or needing a higher level of care. 

Through a direct adoption placement, the adoptive family is not foster certified but licensed to adopt through a home study. During this process, the child lives at the adoptive family’s home for approximately six months until the family legally adopts the child. Building a forever family is a beautiful and wonderful way to offer a safe, loving, and permanent home to a child who deserves one.
