Services We Provide
We take care of services at every level of the adoption process, including:

Identifying a child for adoption and arranging an adoption;
Securing the necessary consent for termination of parental rights and for adoption;
Performing a home study on a prospective adoptive parent(s);
Post-placement visit, which consists of monitoring a case after a child has been placed with prospective adoptive parent(s) until final adoption.

Adoption Advocates is a small, family-operated agency. We only work with a limited number of prospective parents at a time. However, most families have a placement within a year of documentation submission. Please remember that your future child has personal and social circumstances that are very different from your own; if you want the quickest success, you’ll need to be willing to be accepting of those differences. We work with children and prospective parents from the United States and abroad. Every child needs a parent, no matter where they come from.

Adoption Advocates Inc. helps unite children in need with loving parents across the United States and beyond. Call or email us today.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Many adults are eligible to become foster parents in their state but do not always realize it. Each state in the U.S. has regulations and requirements for licensing foster parents. Florida does not require parents to own a large home or quit their jobs and become stay-at-home parents. Florida foster parents must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older
  • Prove good health and ability to care for a child
  • Maintain a stable income
  • Pass a background screening
  • Finish 30 hours of foster parent training
  • Complete a Home Study

The required training course is free to aspiring foster parents. It helps parents learn how to foster children and become licensed to provide foster care in Florida.
