You don’t have to be perfect to be considered for adoption; if you have the ability to love a child, provide the basics and make a lifelong commitment, you can adopt a child from foster care. Patience, flexibility, and a sense of humor are also important qualities to have. You do need to be at least 21 years old to adopt. And although there is no minimum income requirement for adopting, you must have stable income sufficient to support yourself and your family. To adopt a child, you can be married or single; own your home or rent. You can be raising children of your own, never a parent before or an empty-nester who wants to be a parent again.
