Learn more about foster care by contacting us here
The FosterVA team has dedicated itself to giving you the information you want in a supportive and educational format; we are not here to sell you on being a foster parent. We are here to support the future foster and adoption community's families. So if you wish to learn more about foster care or how to adopt children, you have come to the right place.
We know you need good information to make an informed choice, and if that choice leads you to foster care and adoption, we will be so happy, but if not, we will wait until the time is right for you and your family. Children enter foster care every day, so we know there will always be a need for foster parents or parents wishing to adopt a child from foster care.
We believe every foster child needs a loving, caring, and safe home. We know we need homes for children to sleep in every night. Still, more than that, we need them to experience a safe, loving home where all their needs are met to they can recover from the child abuse and neglect they have suffered before coming to your home, and we hope, in time, returns home to their biological parents.
When you open your home, share your loving family members with a child, and become a foster family, we know you will fall in love with this excellent opportunity to help.
You have chosen to investigate becoming a foster parent because you want to provide a loving home for a child in need. If this is going to be a foster or adoptive journey, you may believe in supporting a birth parent to get their biological child back from the social services department custody; you know you can help, and we will help you at no cost.
Whatever your drive to help is, FosterVA believes you need to be ready and understand the needs of the child you wish to look after. We know this choice is a big one, so we will always be here to help you learn more about the foster care system and the impact you can make on the young children you serve.
We promise that we will not pressure you into being a foster parent; we believe you will be ready in your time, not ours. Our team of foster parent advocates and social workers with spend the time to answer all your questions and maybe give you answers to ones you had not thought of at this time.
We are sorry to say we can not help with International adoptions. We stay focused on the 5000 kids in Virginia and over 400,000 in the United States of America.
