Resource Parents Needed to Foster or Foster-Adopt a Child!

(Carson, CA) Adoption is a meaningful way for individuals and couples to fulfill their dream of parenting. There are approximately 64,000 children in foster care in California. Los Angeles Countys foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 500 foster children waiting to be connected to a family who will adopt. Childrens Bureau offers a comprehensive foster care and adoption program that brings families together for a lifetime. The agency is in need of resource families for children in foster care while reunifying with birth families or to provide legal permanency by adoption.

Childrens Bureau Resource Parents protect and nurture children, meet childrens developmental needs, support childrens relationships with their birth families and do all of this as a member of a professional team. Childrens Bureau welcomes every resource parent regardless of, race, age, religion, disability, marital status, ethnic background, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. Qualifying families receive training, family assessment, approval and support. A current CB family advises potential resource parents to come into it with an open mind and an open heart. Be prepared to care beyond anything you could have ever imagined. Watch Childrens Bureau resource families share their experiences here: (https://youtu.be/9HYsV-VO2Rk).
