When a family adopts a child through foster care, UP Kids is with them every step of the way.  

We work with you through the preparation phase (orientation, training, homestudy, license), and then work with you finding a child who will be a good match with your family.  There are minimal to no costs adopting through foster care, and some of the costs incurred are reimbursable.  

Sometimes, it can be a difficult adjustment when a child becomes a part of a new family.  UP Kids workers are there to provide support and expertise through-out the adoption process.

The Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) is a statewide information and referral service for families interested in adopting children from foster care, and for adoption workers looking for homes for these children. The MARE website provides a listing of waiting children in Michigan and of Michigan families interested in adopting children with special needs.

AdoptUSKids is a national project that supports child welfare systems and connects children in foster care with families.
