Both of us work. Will I have to quit my job if I want to adopt or be a foster parent?

Answer

NO. Both parents can be working as long as appropriate childcare arrangements are made. However, if you are adopting, you will be asked to take some time off from your job for the time it takes to have a child placed in your home and for you and your child to begin the process of emotional attachment. Ask your employer now what benefit packages are available to you as an adoptive parent that includes financial support and leave time.
