Thank you for your interest in learning more about foster care and adoption with the Commonwealth of Kentucky. We applaud you for your willingness to want to make a difference in the lives of children.
It is amazing what a life-changing moment it is for you and a child when you choose to open your heart to a young person in need of a temporary home! Most of the children simply need a place to reside temporarily before they are returned to their biological families. For those children who cannot return home, adoption provides them with a permanent family to call their own. Foster and adoptive parents are a valuable resource for children, their biological families, and the entire community.
