Training For Adoption in the Pacific Northwest

Training, which will prepare you for parenting children who may have been abused or neglected, is required in both Oregon and Washington. Although each state differs in content and hours, both require orientation and pre-service training prior to adoption. The training is an overview of the issues involved in foster care and adoption. It prepares prospective parents to better understand a child who comes out of the foster care system.
