Dominick and Courtney

How about becoming an instant family? I was looking at the many children available for adoption in the USA. Here is a really cute brother (5 years old) and sister (only 3). They are both healthy. They love each other and want to find parents. US domestic adoption is not as costly as international adoption. The children often carry some emotional baggage. You have to be willing to give them love and a stable home. These two need strong boundaries and security. Maybe you could have an instant family? I think they are pretty cute!!! They live in Idaho. Be sure to see the video of the two kids at the bottom of the information page HERE!
Who can adopt?
Idaho's Department of Health and Welfare will consider single and married applicants as well as applicants from other states and countries. You do not need to own your own home or be wealthy in order to adopt. Adoption subsidy and one-time reimbursement of adoption expenses make adoption an affordable option for most families who adopt a child with special needs. The most important consideration in the selection process will be how well your own emotional resources and parenting abilities match the needs of a particular child.
To find out more about Dominick and Courtney, call the Idaho CareLine number, 1-800-926-2588. In Idaho you can dial 2-1-1. You may be asked to provide this reference number: 30328.
I think the only real requirement is a homestudy.
