Adopting sibling groups: Why it's a great idea
When looking at the photo listings of Kansas children in foster care waiting for adoption, one thing you notice is the large amount of sibling groups. Adopt Kansas Kids works hard to make sure siblings are adopted by the same family. Adopting from the foster care system is different than private adoption. Most children in the foster care system are older, averaging 8 ½ years old, and have been removed from their homes due to neglect. As of August 31, 2012, there were 922 children in Kansas awaiting adoption through the foster care system, many of them siblings.
