Melissa Pemberton and Roxanne Printz talk about the basics of foster care and adoption through the state.
The department's goal in foster care is to reunify the child with their biological parents. The case only gets transferred to the adoption unity when the child is legally free. Being a foster parent is a ministry. It's an opportunity to disciple the children placed in your home. It's an opportunity to show love to their biological parents and even the social worker.
