What If a Foster Parent Wants to Adopt?

Children need families to call their own. With permanent homes comes lifelong support systems, love and a brighter future. More than 70 percent of our adoptive families begin as foster parents, and then commit to adopting the child in their care. Meet some children in Fairfax County who are available for adoption. Many are school aged and part of sibling groups.

See some of the services Fairfax County’s Foster Care and Adoption program makes available to adoptive parents.
