The Department of Social Services provides adoption services for foster children who become legally free to be adopted by another family. Services include preparing the child to become a part of another family, selecting the adoptive family and facilitating the transition into the home. The department also provides adoptive home studies and recommendations to the
Court for step-parent and parental placement adoptions.
