Adopt Kansas Kids is the Adoption Exchange for Kansas. The program raises awareness about the need for adoptive families for children who currently are in foster care. Children who are featured on Adopt Kansas Kids do not have an adoptive resource and are waiting for a “no matter what” family. Awareness is accomplished through our website and matching database, child profiles in the media, and community events and activities – such as our Klicks for Kids Heart gallery. Adopt Kansas Kids also supports families who are interested in becoming an adoptive parent for a child in foster care. As people inquire about their interest in adopting, Adopt KS Kids will: 1) provide education about the adoption process; 2) answer all questions while trying to decide if adoption is their option; and 3) connect families to an agency in their state who is able to support them and prepare them for the next steps of adoption. This service is provided by FosterAdopt Connect through a contract with the Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF).
