Interested in Adopting from Foster Care?

Since 2006 Dallas Adoption Agency, Hope Cottage, has been partnering with Child Protective Services to build forever familes for children in the foster care system.  At any one time, more than 7,000 children in North Texas in the foster care system are available for adoption.

 Adoptive Families magazine offers some great insight into adopting from Foster Care with these articles. 

Want to read about someone who has adopted from Foster Care?  In The Fost/Adopt Saga  Kathryn Reiss and Tom Strychacz chronicles in a special six part series,  the first year joys and challenges of adopting two older girls from foster care.  Kathryn Reiss is an award-winning author of suspense novels for children and teens. Tom Strychacz writes books and articles on American literature. They both teach at Mills College in northern California, and are the parents of five incredible kids. 

In this excerpt from her moving memoir, Another Mother, Sarah Gerstenzang relates her often painful, yet life-affirming journey as mother to a waiting child.
Kate McKee Robertson shares her discovery that adopting older children was right for her family.
