The State of Alaska Office of Children's Services is in dire need of good homes for foster children. There are hundreds of great kids in need of permanent homes that just need a loving and open family.
I don't care what you've heard about adopting through the State, the process is no more challenging than childbirth or foreign adoption, and the State has resources to help you through it all along the way.
If you are interested in hearing more, please contact the Alaska Center for Resource Families at 279-1799 in Anchorage. That's the organization that gets families trained to take foster children, which is the first step toward adopting.
There are orientations for new potential foster and adoptive parents at the Office of Children's Services at 323 East 4th Avenue. You can find out more at ACRF.org
Our experience with the process was incredibly positive and I can't encourage you enough if you're thinking about growing your family through adoption. I'm happy to talk to anyone about it, so if you've got questions please feel free to get in touch with me at 727-6774.
