Single parent adoption is becoming more popular and is often an option for children in foster care. You still must be able to qualify and pass a home study. An adoption home study includes investigating your financial readiness, emotional well-being, and ability to care for a child as well as yourself and all the needs that come with parenting. As a single adoptive parent, we encourage you to seek support from your family and friends. If you adopt a child of the opposite sex, you’ll also want to look for role models of their gender that could be part of your child’s life. There are many sites that can help you determine whether you’re adoption-ready.
