Has anyone ever adopted through foster care but outside of their state? If so - please, tell me everything.

I've not, but there are plenty of photolisting sites that you can search and request information through. I think because you have your homestudy done and all your state sends information to that state. I'm pretty sure most places like to keep their kids in their own state, but I don't know how all that plays in.

Thanks, Nay and Beth. You are awesome.

According to our social worker, she is paid by the state to place children from this state only and there's a rule that you have to stay within your state for at least a year before you can inquire elsewhere.

Well that is interesting. I've never heard of that rule. I hope your child finds you VERY soon!
