It’s a common misconception that individuals must first become foster parents and foster to adopt before adopting from foster care. There is a direct adoption process through a comprehensive home study.  The home study process ensures that adoptive parents are well-prepared and equipped to provide a loving and stable environment for their future child.

The Home Study Process

The home study is a crucial step in the adoption journey and prevents the need to foster to adopt children from the foster care system. Building Arizona Families ensures that the process is efficient, thorough, and supportive. Prospective parents in Arizona undergo assessments and interviews to confirm they meet the requirements for adoption. The program’s experienced team is there to assist every step of the way, providing the necessary resources and guidance to navigate the process successfully.  Find out more about the home study process HERE.

Adoption of Children From Foster Care is Transformative

For loving Arizona families who desire to grow their families through adoption, adopting from foster care is a rewarding and transformational journey. It is not only a transformative experience for prospective parents but also a life-changing opportunity for the children awaiting loving homes.  Vulnerable children who have been victims of abuse and/or neglect experience healing and new life opportunities when provided with a safe, stable home and loving family.

Foster to Adopt: How to Get Started

To take the first step toward building your forever family, reach out to Ixcel Baca, the dedicated Forever Families program manager, at ixcelbaca@buildingarizonafamilies.com or by calling 623-696-9537.  Ixcel is experienced in working with the Arizona Department of Child Safety, as well as other child welfare agencies around the U.S.  Arizona families that qualify through the home study process are eligible to adopt children in foster care whose parental rights are severed from states around the U.S.   She will be very familiar with the guidelines, including the foster to adopt requirements per state.  Additionally, register for an informative online adoption seminar hosted by Building Arizona Families.
