Question:Has anyone gone the foster care route?

I'm curious as to what the process is like in terms of adopting a child from foster care. Has anyone done it?

Answer:

I work for a law firm that represents children in foster care and have seen many of our clients get adopted by their foster parents. Each state has different guidelines. I think it's a wonderful way to adopt; but might often require some patience. There are so many children in each of our communities that need a family. This is a great way to enrich your life and the life of a child.
