Relative Caregivers Can Provide Special Care Through Adoption
Aspiranet provides support to relative caregivers who have made the
commitment to adopt the children in their care. Aspiranet provides the
Adoption Family Assessment that is needed to transition relative care
providers to their role as adoptive parents. These unique situations require
an expertise when adult siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents are
transitioning to their role as adoptive parents. Aspiranet assists relative
caregivers in promoting the safety, permanency and well-being of children in
their kin network, and to keep them out of the foster care system. Social
workers help to identify the needs of the family, coordinate services, and
establish an ongoing support system to insure that the family receives those
needed services and stays together. Referrals for these adoption home
studies must be made by the child’s county agency.
