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.

I can't associate with anyone that likely supports the harboring of a child that never had the chance to be raised by her actual father I saw the facts that man never had the chance to care for his daughter. The family is disgusting as well should of returned the child the moment they found out she had a parent who didn't agree to this adoption the fact that they still wanna keep this child instead of giving her to the one person that actually deserves to have her is wild. Saying he abandoned his daughter by not providing for her while not in his custody is pathetic and frankly I wouldn't give a cent to people that gave away my child without my permission and I wouldn't give the family that has no issue keeping my child from me... they wouldn't get a cent from me either. I would do what I gotta do and move very far away. Yall are sick

Heart of Adoptions, Inc. guided us through the adoption process, from bringing us together with our newborn son all the way to finalizing our adoption. After four and a half years of waiting for an adoption placement, we couldn’t help but feel a lot of anxiety mixed in with all our hope. Amy is an amazing social worker and was always quick to respond to calls, texts, and emails. She gave us so much peace of mind as we went through all the steps of adopting our little baby boy and answered our many questions with patience and grace. Right away, Amy processed all the basic information that the state of Florida needed to approve our home study and talked us through the steps Florida does in adoptions.
Once Amy cleared us to fly from Illinois to Florida, she connected us to Gift of Adoption, an organization that helped us with adoption expenses through a grant. She started calling our little baby by the name we had picked out for him even though we hadn’t been physically present to sign anything yet, and it warmed our hearts that she was eager to prove to us that the connection was real and that we were really going to be parents at last. It is plain to see that she has a real heart for adoptive families and wants to make the connections happen as smoothly as possible. Amy went above and beyond by checking in with our little guy at the hospital and picking him up when he was discharged, meeting us at her office, which was closer to where we were staying. She cared for him while she waited for us to navigate through traffic and even swaddled him up in a blanket and beanie just to do a quick photo shoot before readying him for his car seat. We adore those pictures and appreciate all the love and care she showed our son as he waited for us to arrive.
The Heart of Adoptions, Inc. agency had steps and paperwork so streamlined that we were often surprised by how quickly everything was processed. Amy was able to use prior experience with Illinois agencies to anticipate any problems or questions they might have, so she had our ICPC coordinated and approved in less than a week, and we were able to travel home with our son much sooner than we ever expected. Heart of Adoptions coordinated well with our Illinois social worker for follow-up visits and information, and the law offices of Jeanne T. Tate that work with Heart of Adoptions did a great job taking over the next steps and walking us through to finalization. When our case was closed, Amy made sure we knew all the details of our account, had everything processed according to our wishes, and included a ledger for tax purposes. We can look back and reflect that Heart of Adoptions, Inc. has done an excellent job of making everything in our adoption process go smoothly, and it is thanks to the hard work of social workers like Amy and her team that we have become parents for our darling little boy.

Extraordinary agency, which is a testament to its leadership over the years, the professionalism of the team employed, and the sensitivity exhibited to birth mothers, birth fathers, and prospective adoptive parents. Plus, the institutional knowledge of the long-term staff is an enormous asset. It is seasoned leadership and a staff dedicated to creating forever families in a manner which respects all parties.
