Foster care and adoption in the age of COVID-19
As a parent—or aspiring parent—you’re already dealing with uncertainty every day. The last thing you needed was to have caseworkers become more difficult to reach or to have the routines you’ve worked so hard to establish unravel as schools close and providers become overwhelmed.

Patience has always been an important quality in people who foster and adopt, and that is doubly true today.
