Hello from Greenwood!


My husband and I have recently finished the licensing process to foster adopt! We are super excited. Are there any groups close to Greenwood for foster adopting? Anyone have any advice while we wait for a match?

We live in Avon and didn’t foster to adopt, but did adopt a 5yo last year through a local program! There is a west side adoption group I’m part of on Facebook that has a wide variety of adoptive families (international, domestic, fostering in general, etc) that isn’t exactly Greenwood area but is in the Indy area! smile

Hello Greenwood! We became licensed at the beginning of the year and are currently fostering-to-adopt a 6 yo from Lake County. We live in Southwest Indiana and I can tell you it has been a bumpy ride. My words to you would be just stay very involved and keep an eye on the website. You will have multiple inquiries before they will interview you for a child. Not all of the SNAP specialist follow the rules of getting back to you, some just ignore them. Once you go to the interview just be yourself and take a “Lifebook”. We basically made a photo album of our lives down here and all, as I knew they would have never heard of Princeton.
I can tell you that it hasnt taken as long as I thought that it would to get to this point but do know… DCS does not tell you the whole story. Always know there is another shoe that will drop.

I’m in Columbus and would love to find a group as well. We are just beginning the process. Would be interested to know any facebook groups in Indiana??

Hey everyone! We’re from Terre Haute, and we’ve got our last home visit tomorrow. After that, it will just be waiting on our case worker to finish our home study. We’re going to foster to adopt for ages 0-5. I’d also be interested to find other couples in our situation as well.

Hi Greenwood, I also live in Greenwood we got approved with DCS but were told for younger kids that we should Foster to Adopt, so now we are going through that process.  I would love a support group as well.
