  • Can you clarify your question? What if you FOSTERED a child for 9 months who became available for adoption, but since you didn't want to adopt that child, they were removed from your home and placed in an adoptive home......could you still foster or adopt? Is that what you are asking???

  • If you didn't want to adopt then the child needs to be sent to a home that is going to adopt her/him. There is no sense in letting a child linger in foster care when there is a permanent home for her/him.

  • Yeah I agree with matthewsdandi, if someone else wants to adopt this child, yes they will come get him or her when you are not interested.

  • It is wonderful to be a foster parent. I am a foster parent myself. However, if you do not want to adopt, it is best to find an adoptive home right away so that the child can bond with that person. Choosing not to adopt should not affect your ability to be a foster parent.

  • Ya~make it legal or let someone else in wants to parent for life~for real. We pass down a legacy to children. We pass a belonging, and centering and home base~just cause your b parents mess up, does't mean you don't get that too~
