Currently, we are not accepting adopt only families who wish to adopt a baby. This is because the children already legally free for adoption are older children. In order to be considered as an “adopt only” family with Hope Hill, a family must be willing to commit to the children who are currently awaiting adoption. These children include:
It’s very rare to know if a child’s goal is adoption when they first come into care. Sometimes children’s goals change to adoption and they are in a foster only home, the social worker will look for an adoptive home to place that child or children.
We cannot guarantee a specific date or time frame for placing a child in your home. A lot of factors affect placement such as a child needing a specific school district, race/religion preference, needing a two-parent home vs. a single parent, ability to be placed with other children, etc. Also, your own preferences may affect wait time.
The more open to behaviors, ages and differences you are, as well as your demonstration of therapeutic skills, the sooner you may get a placement. However, all parties involved must agree that this will be a good match. Please be patient with this process.
That depends on factors such as your ability, your resources, how many children you have of your own, and how much room you have in your home. The maximum number is determined by the Department of Community Base Services.
We will work you and resources that are available to help find beds at short notice.
At the present time we issue checks twice a month.
We work with families to become licensed within 90 days, which can vary based on family availability
