Maneuvering The Foster Care System
Indiana foster care adoptions offer a number of joys and challenges. Among the joys are the wonder of growing your family, the satisfaction of helping a child who deserves a loving and permanent home, and the desire to do the right thing for a child in need. The satisfactions are indeed endless, and the potential to change a child's life, priceless.
However, parents looking to adopt foster care children must be aware that this step is permanent, and is more of a time and financial commitment than fostering was. In particular, parenting a foster child may include dealing with the emotional and psychological issues caused by the child's previous home environment. Parenting a child is a challenging experience: parenting a foster child can have the additional difficulties of working through the child's painful past.
It is crucial to consider the financial and emotional consequences this adoption will have on your family and the child. You will all have to adapt, and this may take time. Adoption counseling is a vital part of the process for both the child and the family during this initial period.
Adopting a child is a huge, life-changing step for anyone to undertake. This process takes place by working with Indiana's Child Care Services, the organization that deals with Foster Care in the state of Indiana. Attorney Baird has extensive experience dealing with this organization, and she can also negotiate post-adoption contact with the biological parent or parents according to your wishes.
