120,000 U.S. children who are ready to be adopted are hoping you'll pick up this book. Have you ever thought you'd adopt a child, but finding out it costs thousands of dollars kicked that idea to the curb? Most people believe that all children in foster care return to their biological families. Many do not know that 50% of children in foster care need an adoptive family and that adopting children through foster care costs $0 - $2,500.

Countless times friends and friends of friends have reached out asking about foster care adoption and how we adopted our children through foster care. "The Forgotten Adoption Option" is dedicated to helping you evaluate your own heart and simplify the process of foster care adoption so you can help a child who is hoping you will find them.

While I cannot promise you that the process will be a walk in the park, I can tell you that going down this path has been extremely rewarding for my family. Truly understanding the adoption system took us five years. With the help of this book, you'll learn how the process works from a family who has already navigated it!
