Anyone adopt through foster care in Louisiana?

Joe & I are looking to adopt. We cant really afford to go through the whole adoption process. So we decided to try to adopt through foster care. Is there anyone from Louisiana who has done this? Where do i even begin to start? Do you know about how much it all costs?

    This is for the state office... If you tell me what parish you live in i could get the contacts for your area.......I'm not adopting through foster care but so far my adoption has cost a little over $3000 I dont know if its different when you're adopting through foster care or not... But best wishes and good luck :)

  • You can call your local CPS office and ask when the next training starts. Where we are, they are every 3 months. Go to the orientation and you will learn lots, including if this is the route you should take to adopt. Good luck and I hope it works out for you! PS-As far as adoption costs, they are minimal, and sometimes less depending on the ages, sibling groups, etc. Again, good luck!
