Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source to fund a support group for post adoptive parents of foster youth from the child welfare system. The support group will educate the parents of the transitional process of adoption and provide group support through networking and sharing resources. An extensive literature review was performed to analyze the history of adoptions, adoption policies, theoretical implications, protective factors, risk factors, the needs and effectiveness of a support group program. A search for potent funding source was conducted through Internet, which resulted in selecting Stuart Foundation as an appropriate funding source. With evidence-based findings of a need for a support group, the primary goal of the proposed program was to equip the adoptive parents with knowledge and resources to decrease the prevalence of dissolution and disruption. The actual submission and funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
