Adoption and Foster Care

Family Research Council strongly supports adoption, particularly as an alternative to abortion or long-term foster care. The purpose of adoption or foster care is not to provide children for adults who want them, but to provide children with families that give them the experience of a permanent and stable intact married family life as much as possible. Public policy should, therefore, include a primary preference for placing adoptive or foster children with a married mother and father as long as such are available.
