The mission of Spirit of Faith Adoptions is to provide Christ-centered adoption services, including education and awareness. We offer grace, compassion, and support to biological parents, adoptive families, and adoptees as they navigate the lifelong journey of adoption.

Our team is full of passionate Christ-followers who believe that transformative love is available to the biological parents, the adoptive family, and the children who experience open adoption.

For 17 years, Spirit of Faith Adoptions has supported both biological and adoptive families, and will continue on this mission, because the smiles on these adoptees' faces are important to all of us!

Requirements to become a foster parent

After deciding to foster, make sure your household members are on board with what will be a life-changing decision to foster. Then, educate yourself about Ohio's requirements for foster parents. Applicants who want to foster or adopt in Ohio must:

  • Be at least 21 years of age
  • Live in a safe and stable home
  • Meet home safety requirements
  • Clear a background check with fingerprinting
  • Provide at least three character references
  • Provide ample space for a foster child in their house or apartment
  • Attend foster parent orientation
  • Take part in required hours of foster parent training
  • Maintain financially stability
  • Prove good health
  • Complete the Home Study process

To apply or ensure you meet the prerequisites, there are two primary Ohio state resources. Contact the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS) or a local Public Children's Service Agency (PCSAs).

If you are ready to learn more, contact a local child-placing agency to schedule foster parent information orientation. At orientation, aspiring foster parents learn more about foster parenting responsibilities, navigating the foster system, and the foster application process. If you have questions, orientation is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and meet other potential foster families.

Administrative paperwork can take some time to complete, but having everything prepared will ensure it goes smoothly. It will help the process move along if you gather financial documents ahead of time. These include tax filings and paystubs, which you will need to show as proof of financial stability.

Foster parents in Ohio must also attend 24 hours of pre-service foster parent training. This training teaches foster families about the trauma experienced by all foster children. It also covers how to provide general and specialized care to foster children.

My wife and I adopted our oldest child over 14 years ago and they were great! Each step was explained very well and when we had questions, they did a fantastic job to answer them. They have a heart to help out both parties involved and make it as seemless as possible. I would highly recommend Spirit of Faith adoptions with all adoption needs.

I have been incredibly honored to partner with Spirt of Faith in the adoption of my children. They are a group of exceptional people whose love for women, children and families, shines brightly. If you are feeling alone, please reach out to them. They will show you compassion no matter what your story, and you can trust them to help and not judge. They are
wonderful people.

Spirit of Faith Adoptions helped us adopt our son, and it was the best experience! I love that we were able to know the staff personally, they know us, and matched us perfectly. We are so grateful to God and SOFA for bringing us together and walking us through every step of the way.
