寄养至领养 (Fost-Adopt)

u102_top.jpg

许多准父母选择通过寄养系统来领养。在寄养系统中,孩子们是被美国儿童福利服务机构从对孩子成长不利的原生家庭带走的,他们急需一个充满爱和温暖的家庭。一般来讲,寄养系统中的孩子,加入寄养家庭之后很有可能与原生家庭团聚。但如果这个目标不能实现,那么寄养家庭就可以选择正式领养这个孩子。

我们机构有许多资源(寄养)父母已经成功领养了在他们家中寄养的儿童。

 

在大多数情况下,领养过程可能需要1到2年的时间,并且只有在以下情况下才有可能进行领养:

 

1)法院认定无法与亲生父母或家人团聚

2)亲生父母的抚养权 (parental rights) 已被终止

从寄养转到领养家庭的基本步骤:

1
培训和测验
2
申请文件
3
背景调查
4
20小时寄养(资源)家庭培训
5
CPR/心肺复苏急救培训
6
家庭评估面谈
7
住家检查
8
寄养儿童安置日的培训和持续培训教育

如何成为寄养家庭? 

  • Who is a Resource (Foster) Parent?
    A Resource (Foster) Parent is someone who provides a temporary safe, stable, and loving home for a child or children. You will help them reunite with their birth parents or family member when the family problems have been resolved. Being a foster parent is a major responsibility. KFAM provides personal training, support, financial and medical assistance to foster parents.
  • Am I Eligible to Become a Resource (Foster) Parent?
    Flexibility, a sense of humor, willingness to grow and learn, and a commitment to provide a safe, stable, nurturing, and loving home for a child. You may be single, married, divorced, or living with a partner. You may live in an apartment or house, as long as you have enough room for the child. No minimum income is required, but you must be able to support yourself. For working parents, appropriate childcare arrangements need to be made. You may be of any race, ethnicity, culture religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
  • What Resources Are Available?
    Personal Support Your social worker will prepare, train, and support you through the foster preparation process. You will also be connected with community resources that you might need. If you choose to adopt a child, post-adoptive services are available to all adoptive families. Financial/Medical Support You will receive medical and dental coverage for your child, as well as monthly financial support until the child is 18. Also, if a child has mental health and/or medical needs, increased foster and adoption assistance payments are available.
  • What is the Application Process?
    There is no fee to become a Resource Parent (Foster and/or Adoptive Parent). With a completed application, it takes about 3-6 months to go through the process; but remember everyone’s situation is different and therefore timeframes will vary. Once you are approved, the type of child who you want to parent will affect how quickly a child can be placed with you.
