Have you considered adopting a child that is not an infant? I always encourage couples
to consider contacting the Alabama Department of Human Resources to learn more about
becoming a foster parent. You can enroll with the Department of Human resources as
a foster parent; have a child placed in your home under a foster care agreement;
and become eligible to adopt that child, should their parents’ parental rights be
terminated and the child placed for adoption.
By going through the Department of Human Resources foster care program, you can adopt
absolutely free, however there is a legal risk that the child may become reunited
with his/her parents.
