Frequently asked questions

Q.) Am I responsible for the kid's health care expenses?

Q.) How long will I have the child?
A.) The foster care system is so unpredictable, you could have the child for a day or have the child for 18 years, and it all depends on the child and the family.

Q.) Is it ok if I'm not married?

A.) You do not have to be married to provide a loving home to a child. We gladly license single, married and same sex couples.
