How long will I have to wait until I’m placed with a child?

Once approved, there is no standard timeframe to have a child placed in your home. The time can vary depending on the child(ren) being referred for adoption and your own family’s strengths and experiences. While we strive to only move forward with assessing families who we feel are likely to be a placement match for the children we serve, in recent years, we have seen a significant reduction in children being referred for adoption by people who are unknown to them, resulting in longer delays. Families that can support a wider range of age and needs will have a greater likelihood of being matched with a child, however there is no guarantee of a child match.
