Adoptive families like you deserve short, accurate wait times and financial protection that keeps your adoption budget safe. We’re the only agency that provides both. Your dream of starting a family can become a reality.

The adoption process is an amazing journey, and it starts right here. We believe you deserve complete support during your adoption from start to finish. That’s why we provide more comprehensive adoption services than other professionals — so that you can feel confident and secure in your adoption.

We look forward to meeting you and discussing your needs. There’s a lot that goes into adoption. If you’re thinking about this journey as a way to start or grow your family, you’ll need a lot of support along the way.

Most professionals specialize in one aspect of the process — they might provide home studies, marketing services, or casework support. The difference with American Adoptions is that we can do it all.

We want you to experience the most comprehensive support that puts you in the position to have a successful adoption process. Because of our large staff size, decades of adoption experience, and high adoption success rates, you can have the adoption experience you deserve.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Start by researching the state requirements for new parents. In Kansas, all foster parents must:

  • Be 21 years or older
  • Maintain financial stability
  • Live in a safe and comfortable home
  • Pass the home inspection
  • Provide enough personal space for a foster child
  • Clear a background check (all adults in the house)
  • Have a valid driver's license and an insured vehicle
  • Finish required foster parent training
  • Complete the Home Study Process

Good foster parenting requires your best effort, but not "perfect" parenting. Spend time to learn about the foster care system and the information given to you during training and orientation. Once you have become a licensed foster parent, focus on your foster child's wants, needs, and overall well-being.

To learn more about becoming a foster parent in Kansas, contact your local child-placing agency. These social service agencies are state-approved to match foster children with licensed foster care homes.

Every foster agency provides orientation, where you will receive information about foster care and how to obtain a license. Orientation will help you decide if fostering a child is the right path for you and your family. If you are married or in a relationship, ask yourselves questions before committing to fostering together.

After orientation, your next step is the family assessment process, including the Home Study. A social worker at your local child-placing agency will help you through every step.

Worked with American when adopting both our kids. Staff was helpful, knowledgeable and kind. Both experiences were very positive. Staff helped us navigate some of the challenges that arose, as they will during adoption process. A great agency!

Going through the adoption process can be a difficult and emotional journey. Melanie and the team we worked with at American Adoptions helped guide us through this journey and made our dreams come true. They are thorough with the process, helping to educate us on the complexities of adopting a child. We received access to training, help to create a profile, and guidance on what to expect before being selected. We were paired with the most fantastic birth mother. While we welcomed our son to our family, we also welcomed his birth mother. Having an open adoption has been outstanding for our family. We could not have done it without American Adoptions.

American Adoptions is the absolute BEST! They always make sure you are comfortable and they take the time to explain everything to you, so you know exactly what your options are! I have went through them with 2 pregnancies and found an amazing couple for my sons! ❤️ Carly is an amazing woman and she has always validated my feelings and always brought me up when I was feeling down! If you are considering adoption, please go through them, as you won't regret it! ☺️
