Foster & adoption: childhood

Many Stark County community members choose to expand their families through fostering and adoption. For children who need a stable home, the permanent care of adoption or the temporary safe haven of fostering can help. Even if you are not sure if fostering or adoption is the right path for you, find information to help you learn about the options available.

Most children who are eligible for adoption in Stark County are over the age of six and have experienced some level of trauma, abuse, neglect or loss. Despite these experiences, they are just like any other children. They play, laugh, learn and value friendships. Some may need specialized services to help them reach their full potential, but they all deserve the love and support of family.
