Can we adopt a young child from foster care if a situation arises where we might have the opportunity to do so while fostering?
If we do straight adoption through foster care, are younger children available?
Which process do you recommend for our situation, fostering or adoption?
Please share your thoughts as we are new to this process, thanks!

I believe you can foster thru adoption. My mom is a foster parent in WA and I think the laws are similar. Definitely try foster care. It can be difficult if you get attached to a child but there are so many kids that need a safe stable environment where they will not be judged. Children of all ages are available. My mom currently has a 6 month old, 2 and 3 year olds and has had kids up through 9 years.
