Adoption is a meaningful way for individuals and couples to fulfill their dream of parenting. There are approximately 64,000 children in foster care in California. Los Angeles County’s foster care population exceeds 21,000 children with 500 foster children waiting to be connected to a family who will adopt. Children’s Bureau offers a comprehensive foster care and adoption program that brings families together for a lifetime. The agency is in need of resource families for children in foster care while reunifying with birth families or to provide legal permanency by adoption. A CB resource parent advises potential resource parents “to come into it with an open mind and an open heart. Be prepared to care beyond anything you could have ever imagined.” Watch Children’s Bureau resource families share their foster-adoption experiences here (https://youtu.be/9HYsV-VO2Rk). Discover if you have the willingness, ability and resources to take on the challenge of helping a child in need. A monthly information meeting is being held Saturday, June 10, 2017 from 10:00 AM to Noon at Children’s Bureau’s Carson office, 460 East Carson Plaza Drive, Suite 102, Carson 90746.
