A good place to start investigating adoption is Adoption.com – see link below. They are a decent place for information, to the best of my knowledge, and should be able to give you a rundown on different state laws. They also have a photo listing of available children.

Good luck.

  1. You cannot strictly foster a child from another state, no. you can foster to adopt any child in the US, though your social worker will be reluctant to do so unless you are a relative of the child. Generally, social workers will choose a child from within your jurisdiction who’s needs will be best met by you. You cannot ‘pick’ your own child, but you do have a lot of say. During the homestudy, you will be asked what kind of requirements you have–race, age, sex, ability level, etc. The more specifics that you have the longer you wait will be. When you are chosen as a potential placement, you are then shown pictures of the child. If you are unhappy with anything you read or see, you can decline the placement. if you go through with it, you are then to visit with the child at his current location. If you have an problems/concerns, you can decline placement then. Once the child is placed with you, you can also request that the child be returned, however this is a terrible thing to do and should be avoided at all costs.

  2. I don’t know, but its good that you are interested in it, have you tried doing a google or ask.com search for foster info from your state, and then compare to those from TX, or where ever you were wanting to adopt, I actually think the state would prefer you adopt from the same state so that they can come do their checks but I don’t know

    you could get alot more info searching on google than asking here
