Taking the Risk, Time & Time Again

Taking the Risk, Time & Time Again

Brandy and Matt decided to adopt through foster care because of the number of children in the system who need homes. They became foster parents who were supportive of reunification, but were also open to pre-adoptive placements. Now a family of 6, they admit that adopting 4 kids wasn’t in their initial plan. But, they also adamantly insist that their family is “messy, but perfect in our messiness.”

Celebrating Reunification

Celebrating Reunification

We love celebrating the families who make the decision to adopt children and youth in Indiana Adoption Program. But we also love celebrating the families – birth families, foster families, friends who feel like family – who work toward reunification in every way possible. And June – National Reunification Month – is the perfect time to do that!

Finding the Positive

Finding the Positive

The impact of the recent physical distancing on our economic, infrastructural and psychological stability will be felt for years to come. It can be hard to look for the positives in this situation — but we found two families willing to share how they created opportunities for good.

Adjusting to Uncertainty

Adjusting to Uncertainty

With the COVID-19 health crisis at the forefront of daily life, it can feel like there are so many more unknowns than “knowns.” This is new territory, and figuring it out as we go along seems to be the name of the game. Fortunately, there are some outstanding resources available for foster and adoptive families (truthfully, for any families!) who are navigating this uncertain time.
