Resource Details
Description ADOPTION: Provides services which enable children to become free for adoption and to be placed with adoptive parents. These services can be provided at the direct request of the child's birth parents or initiated by foster care staff for children who have been abandoned or who have been in foster care with no chance of returning to their families.

Children are placed with adoptive parents who have previously applied to adopt and have been approved to do so through a home study process. Most of the children freed for adoption have special needs and disabilities.
