Minimizing Obstacles for Military Families Wanting to Adopt

5/30/2007:   A guide from the Department of Health and Human Services, Wherever My Family Is: That's Home! Adoption Services for Military Families, highlights adoption practices that can help minimize the obstacles military families face when attempting to become foster or adoptive parents.

The user-friendly guide includes stories from military families and is designed for both social work practitioners and military families contemplating adoption or foster parenting. In addition to being available on the Collaboration to AdoptUsKids website, Wherever My Family Is: That's Home! Adoption Services for Military Families is available by calling 888/200-4005.

A team that included representatives of the Children's Bureau, the Collaboration to AdoptUsKids, the Adoption Exchange Inc., McKenzie Consulting, the National Military Family Association, and the American Public Human Services Association prepared the guide.
