Adoption is the legal transfer of the parental rights and responsibilities from a child’s birth parents to the adoptive parents. But adoption is not the only way to help children in crisis, you may be interested in becoming a foster parent or a Guardian Ad Litem. Two foster parents, Trudy and Lisa, discuss the various challenges in the foster care system. For a prospective adoptive parent, fostering to adopt makes the adoption process easier to navigate. For Trudy and Lisa, parenting through adopting can be one of the most life-changing and yet rewarding experiences, but it is important to understand the adoption process and the different adoption opportunities available. Our Kids of Miami-Dade and Monroe can provide you with additional information and referral services, support groups, adoption-related libraries, case management and training.
