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.

Q&A: What are some reasons the State would allow a little girl to be all alone, her siblings adopted without her?

Question by amyhpete: What are some reasons the State would allow a little girl to be all alone, her siblings adopted without her?
I am not in a position to adopt Elizabeth, financially, and I accept that. I do hope someone in our state will adopt her so she does not have to wait. However, if my fortunes change radically in a short time, and they may with some things I have going, I hope I can get my husband on board with it (and I think I can). We have a 19 year old son, whom I believe would be moved out before she moved in, as well as a 16 year old daughter and 9 year old son.

But she looks like she does not have any serious issues, and the description of her does not list anything that’s a big deal. I get that she has an IEP at school. I have 14 years of experience dealing with IEPs for my son from kindergarten through 12th grade, until he graduated in 2011.

Why on earth would they adopt her siblings without her? In mentioning it, it’s obvious they grew up together! She also does not seem like a girl who has been in care for very long, and she knows how to knit, which is a huge bonus! She can teach me!

The only thing I can think of is that it was her half siblings, and there was a family member who would take them, but rejected her, and they had to do the family placement for the younger siblings.

If it was older siblings, I would think they would be in a treatment home while she was free to be adopted by a “regular” family because she’s good.

I *know* I would have to have a home study done to be able to ask the caseworker for specifics. I am looking for experiences from other foster to adopt families, or just theories.

There are obviously many reasons. She might be disruptive. She maybe has been seriously ignored within her family. They mention need for structure and that may not be possible with all the other siblings. Also, keep in mind that while someone may have been open to adopting the other siblings, maybe they could only take 3 and she is number 4 and they just can’t manage that many.
