There are many different ways to adopt: Foster-to-Adopt, Adoption only (out of Foster Care), Kinship, International Adoption, and Private Adoptions. In order to adopt out of the foster care system, you must meet the following requirements:
Be at least 21 years of age
Be in good physical health
Pass a criminal background check
Be able to financially provide for a child
You may adopt through the state, or through a private agency, we have taken the liberty of listing a few down below. Every agency is different, and the adoption process can seem overwhelming, we encourage you to attend one of our FREE Fostering Hope Texas Community Summits to learn more about the licensing process, foster care, the adoption process, and much more!
