The terms “foster adopt” or “fost-adopt” refer — not surprisingly — to foster adoption, which is one of the adoption options families choose from. Children placed in foster adopt homes are deemed likely to be available for adoption within a reasonable time frame. You foster the child until the birth parents’ rights are terminated, then adopt.
In a U. S. foster adoption, the fees are minimal to non-existent, wait times can be shorter than in private or international adoption, and there are many younger children, toddlers, and even infants available for adoption. In many cases, subsidies are available for the child’s living expenses and healthcare, even after the adoption is completed.
