to a child in need of a forever family.
Sadly, in some situations it becomes impossible to safely return children to their family home. This is called: Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) and it is established by a court of law. LSF works to find a permanent home for the child through the adoption process.
How does the adoption process work?
- Recruitment of adoptive homes: We seek a home that fits the child in need of a permanent solution.
- Adoption Home Studies: LSF conducts a home study to ensure it is the right fit for both the child and the family seeking to adopt. The study process includes home visits, background checks, interviews, and inspections.
- PRIDE Training: we coordinate and co-facilitate a training called Parent Resources Information Development Education (PRIDE) to help us identify potential adoptive families.
- Child Studies: We compile the documentation to prepare child studies and legal reporting.
