State Adoption Requirements

 

Description

Thanks to Focus on the Family, you can visit the links below to learn about adoption in your state. When considering adoption of any type, the most important first step is prayer.  If after praying you are interested in adoption from foster care, the next step would be to determine whether you meet your state’s requirements.   Below are links to adoption information in all 50 states.

To view pictures of some of the waiting children and youth, please visit the Heart Gallery of America web site.
