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.
