It doesn't matter if you are single or married. You don't have to be wealthy or own a home you just need to have adequate financial resources to provide for a family.

Children in the foster care system become eligible for adoption following termination of parental rights due to abuse or neglect. There are about 13,000 children in the foster care system, but the goal for most of the children is reunification with their families.

Anyone interested in adopting from foster care can contact the Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange at 800-589-6273 and see biographies and photos of children available for adoption.
