Wait No More: A Foster-Care Adoption Story | Focus on the ...

What Is The Difference Between Foster Care And Adoption?

What Is The Difference Between Foster Care And Adoption?

Despite the reason for needing help, these children are welcomed at Family Care for Children and Youth to join families that can care for the child as needed - financially and emotionally - whether through adoption or foster care.

The main differences between foster care and adoption in Pennsylvania have to do with parental...

After children spend 12 to 18 continuous months in foster care, their chances of leaving foster care decrease rapidly, and once children spend 36 to 42 continuous months in foster care, their chances of leaving foster care are extremely low.

Around the world, there are an estimated 153 million orphans. Many are living in orphanages or on the streets and lack the care and attention required for healthy development. These children are at risk for disease, malnutrition, and death.
