U.S. Foster Adoption Waiting
Submitted our first inquiry on waiting sibs
Over the weekend - we submitted an inquiry for a pair of siblings ages 7 and 9. We have 3 bio kids - ages 14, 12, and 9. We initially started the adoption process a year ago looking at international adoption and then began pursuing infant adoption through our local agency.
We have been part of the waiting parents group with our agency for 4 months now and our profile has been viewed but we haven’t been chosen.
Through reading posts on this site and getting to know more about the different approaches to adoption - I thought it absolutely couldn’t hurt to look into adopting from foster care. Our biggest concern was that our only options would be for legal risk placements.
I would love to hear from folks who have submitted an inquiry on a waiting child or sibling group. What happens next? I received a form email from the kids’ caseworker saying thanks for the inquiry and all interested families will be evaluated for the pair.
