What is “Foster to Adopt”?

Foster to adopt is an approach at the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society that blends fostering and adoption together. Reunification with family and caretakers is always the plan for children; however sometimes this is not possible. Foster homes that may be permanent homes contribute to a system that absorbs the emotional risks for children. Every foster to adopt home is potentially a permanent home should the child be eligible for adoption at a later time. Instead of moving a child to a “permanent” home should that be necessary, the child can remain in the home where he or she was initially placed. Planning reduces the time that a child spends in the care of the children’s aid society, and reduces the number of moves for a child in care. This in turn promotes security, resilience and attachment for a child. Families must always be prepared that a child could be reunited with their family or extended family.
