There are children waiting right now in the state of
Kansas, hoping to be adopted. Most of them are over
the age of 6, teenagers, some with special physical or
medical needs or part of a sibling group. If you are
hoping to adopt an infant, then most likely you should
consider a private domestic or international adoption.
However, there are several hundred amazing kiddos
right here in Kansas who would love for you to consider
becoming their no-matter-what family!
These children's parental rights have been terminated--
meaning that they are now legally available for adoption.
Sadly, many of these young kids and teens do not have
anyone coming for them. While some are adopted by their foster parents, many are left waiting--and often they age out of the foster care system without a permanent family of their own.
You likely have a lot of questions. That's great! We'd love to visit with you to answer them. Please CONTACT us. Like those wanting to become
foster parents, anyone wanting to adopt from foster
care in Kansas must also take the TIPS-MAPP course.
We at Foster the Cause are able to offer it in two
different ways through our partnerships with child-
placing agencies here in Kansas. The first is a 2
weekend class, while the second is a one-on-one
version called Deciding Together or DT. There's a lot
to the process, but don't let that discourage you. We
are here to help walk you through it, every step of the
way. And, hey, if you decide that foster care or
adoption is not for you--we are happy to help you
find your place in the fight for Kansas kids and their
families, wherever that might be!
