Building Arizona Families is working hard to provide forever homes for foster children in need of a permanent family. Our local Arizona adoption agency connects adoptive families with kids in the foster care system in Arizona and throughout the United States. All children deserve to live a beautiful and happy life, and adopting foster kids in Arizona can provide them with the home they dream of.
The Forever Families U.S. Adoption program is an exciting program for families living in Arizona. Our adoption agency is proud to offer adoptions for families who are helping to provide forever homes for children in the foster care system throughout the country. Adopting foster kids can be a beautiful way for a family to grow.
How Long Does the Adoption Process Take?
After a home study is complete, a social worker works with you to help you select a child or children that you are interested in. Then your home study is submitted to that child’s/children’s caseworker. The caseworker and other significant people in the children’s lives collect a selected number of home studies and choose the family they feel is best suited to meet the needs of the available child/children. The length of the selection process and number of pre-placement transition visits will vary with the children’s home location.

How Long has Building Arizona Families Provided Adoption Services?
Building Arizona Families opened its doors in September 2004 and has been serving children and families since that time. Building Arizona Families is licensed by the State of Arizona and is Hague Accredited. We have professional staff who is knowledgeable in adoption related issues.
How Many Families Does your Agency Work With at any One Time?
Building Arizona Families works with a number of families in each program. It varies due to the number of children available. The agency welcomes all requests from families and is happy to provide families with a general idea of when a home study might be started.
What is an Adoption Home Study or Pre-Adoptive Home Screening?
The home screening/home study process is an opportunity for your caseworker and the agency to get to know you and the kind of child that will best fit into your family and to provide you with information on the resources of the agency and the children who are available. It is also an opportunity for you, as an adoptive family, to learn more about adoption issues. All families who choose to adopt must complete the home study and training process before being approved for adoption.
