Adoption can be one of the most loving and selfless things someone can do. It’s fair to say that the foster care system for each state is extremely underfunded and overfilled with children that need loving forever homes.

Michael and Kelsa made the decision to adopt through the Arizona foster care system almost three years ago and were lucky enough to adopt their son, Alex, on June 14th of 2019.

Many people have asked them about the process as well as the financials for adopting Alex. While each state is different in regards to the foster to adopt programs available, Kelsa and Michael have put together some great talking points about their experience so you can do some initial leg work for your state.
