There are differences between adoption agencies. This is YOUR adoption journey. It is important that you select an agency with which you feel comfortable and that will provide you with the support and assistance you need.

  • Our priority is education. Adoption STAR offers comprehensive pre-parenthood adoption education classes that are tailored to your adoption path, as well as ongoing training opportunities on topics relating to adoptive parenting, transracial adoption, post-adoption family support, and more!
  • We are client-centered: when you call, you will always reach a real person, never an automated system. Our goal is to be accessible, responsive, and connected.
  • We offer a number of adoption options, including domestic infant and older child adoption. We can also help you complete your home study for an international adoption.
  • We pride ourselves on the diversity of our families, including our work with LGBTQIA+ individuals around the adoption triad. Adoption STAR believes that there is no single way to be a family for a child. Loving homes come in all configurations, made stronger by a mix of genders, religions, racial identities, and family types (including single parent households). We welcome all families and all the ways caring adults can provide a loving foundation for a child.

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.

Having had experience with other agencies and private adoption attorneys, I can share hands down that this is the finest organization around. They genuinely care about people. I think when adoption agencies receive negative reviews it is often from people who are not able to be approved or find issue with the fact that agencies must conduct due diligence and work in the best interest of the women and children they advocate for each and every day. I applaud the work of this agency and thank them for what they do.
