Q: Can I adopt my foster child?
A: In most circumstances a foster parent can adopt a foster child. Depending on the whether the care plan for the minor child is adoption and there is no reunification plan in place for the birth parents, a foster parent can file a petition for third party adoption. In some circumstances, the Department of Human Services will pay up to $1,500.00 of the attorney’s fees for the adoption for children who are in foster care.
