Adoption and foster care can be a great way to start and grow your family. Some aspects of military life, such as deployments or relocations, can make the adoption and foster care process a little more complicated, but despite the challenges, military families can provide foster and adopted children with wonderful homes.

You don’t have to navigate the adoption or foster care on your own. A Military OneSource adoption consultant can guide you on the process of adopting or fostering a child. Our adoption consultants are specially trained in military adoptions and foster care essentials and will help you wherever you are in the process.
