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.

This is a beautiful and very heartfelt adoption company that has given me the best option for benefiting me on my journey thru the adoption process they have ultimately given me the best route and has provided me with all the resources that I need to not only provide a better life for my self but also providing a better life for my daughter as well. The staff here are undoubtedly one of the biggest supporters with providing the necessity of making sure you and ultimately you are safe and are ultimately alright both physically and emotionally and mentally. I would definitely recommend seeing someone if you ever d cider to choose this route. I wouldn't even change my mind or any of my decisions for myself and the future of my baby this was the great one for me and my child

I'm a birth mother. The adoptive "parents" are not properly screened, although I do believe this to be due to poor state and federal regulations. Adoptive parents are NOT properly educated and are trusted on their outward appearances. I am NOT saying all adoption cases turn sour, but mine has been an utter heartbreak from 4 months forward. Most of the staff is nice, and does believe what they are doing is for the better. It's just unfortunate that not all adoption stories are good ones. Adoption is one option, but there ARE others.

As a provider of temporary care for the infants waiting for placement, I can attest to the professionalism and high level of care with which each adoption is handled. They are very loving and caring of all the babies that come into their care, and are equally compassionate to both the birth parents and the adoptive parents as well. Confidentiality and respect has always been their priority. I would highly recommend their services to anyone considering adoption or finding a loving family for their birth child.
