You Might Qualify to Adopt Foster Children in Arizona
Did you know that there are foster children throughout Arizona who can’t return home, whose biological parents have had their parental rights severed as a result of abuse and neglect, and who are hoping that someone will open their heart and home to them? They want forever families. They want to be adopted. If this moves your heart, you might be surprised at who can qualify to adopt foster children in Arizona and throughout the United States.
Criteria to Adopt Foster Children
To adopt foster children, you have to complete a home study and pass a home inspection, but that doesn’t mean you have to own your own home. Home can be an apartment. You have to be financially stable, but you don’t have to be wealthy.
You need to provide a loving family environment, but you don’t have to be married. Single parents are welcome to adopt foster children in Arizona and throughout the United States.
To adopt foster children through Building Arizona Families, you need to be residents of Arizona. The foster children do not have to be residents of Arizona, and Building Arizona Families will work with you to adopt a foster child or foster children that best suit your family.
If You Adopt Foster Children, You Change a Child’s Future
Foster children are cared for by state child protective agencies and primarily live in group homes. On average, they move three times a year, which often means changing schools and losing trusting relationships, friends, and encouraging teachers. Over time, these vulnerable children close down emotionally and do not want to continue to make caring relationships only to lose them. They also fall behind in school because of the frequency of moving, and in many instances get discouraged and quit trying. If they are not adopted out of the foster care system, the outcomes are even worse. Children who were abuse and neglected now find themselves facing the world alone as young adults without the support they need to successfully navigate life. If no one steps up to adopt foster children and they age out of the system, most do not attend college. Many wind up homeless and addicted.
The story changes dramatically when they are adopted. Being welcomed into a loving family and stable living environment helps them heal emotionally. They often improve rapidly in school, and their outlook on their future becomes much brighter.
