Our Flexible Families (Foster-to-Adopt) Program is designed for families seeking to adopt a child through the foster care system and provides supportive resources and services unique to foster adoption. Serving children 3-18 in the child welfare system, Adoption Options identify families best suited to embrace and manage the specialized needs of Colorado's waiting children. The process - from navigation to placement, to counseling and coaching - helps to promote success and ultimate well-being for the child and family.
Children placed through this program may have a history of abuse or neglect; may be an older child or part of a sibling group; or may have special medical, emotional, or behavioral needs.Through this program, Adoption Options partners with departments of human services here in Colorado and in other states to match these waiting children with permanent adoptive families.
This program is open to couples or single applicants, with or without other children in the family. Families who tend to be most successful in this program are those with a high degree of flexibility and reasonable expectations of the child being placed. We typically hold monthly Information Nights to go through the Flexible Families Adoption Program, the process, fees, etc. and to answer initial questions. In addition to attending an Information Night, we also ask that families interested in this program have a one-on-one meeting with a representative from the program. Call or email the agency to find out when the next Information Night will be held and to set up a meeting with a program representative.
