We are trying to find out the qualifications of going towards adoption and is foster parenting a resource to help with adoption, if so what are the qualifications for that source.
In regards to foster care, it depends on which foster program you are going into. Many states have foster to adopt programs, which means the children in the program are eligible for adoption.
Qualifications for foster care - clean criminal background check, home study approval, financial stability (not rich, but not dependent on the foster care benefits for your own needs) and training classes prior to obtaining licensure and training classes after licensure to maintain license.
Adoption qualifications (some of this may depend on whether you are adopting internationally or domestically) - both require clean criminal background checks, approved home study and financial stability. With International Adoption, you must also take training to meet Hague convention requirements, you must receive CIS approval and some countries require psychological evaluations.
No matter which route you take, good luck!
