Foster Care is a fabulous option for people looking to adopt!!
Foster Care is a state run program helping children find temporary and sometimes even permanent homes while their biological parents either carry out court issued treatment or other orders, or until their rights are terminated.
I have quite a few friends who do/have done Foster Care. They have adopted anywhere from infant age to teenagers. Although some may have emotional issues to work through or physical or mental disabilities, it is a great way to make a difference and possibly your family.
This is directly from the Utah Foster Care Foundation : non-profit organization that finds, trains, and supports Utah families who are willing and able to provide a nurturing home for children who have been neglected or abused.
