I am wondering if any of you on here can give me any advice. I am currently single and I run a home for adults with special needs but am seriously considering adopting a child. However, I don't know if this would be allowed??? I work literally 24/7 taking care of my clients in my home.So, if anyone knows anything about this please let me know. Thanks

I doubt you could adopt a child and live in the same dwelling where you care for other adults. You'd have to live in a separate home. All adults (18 years and above) who live in the home where a foster/adoptive child will be placed must be screened and pass a background check, which mainly means they'll be fingerprinted. Same applies to Daycare owners. Business location and home must be separate.

How are you going to pass the home study if you're primary residence is a adult group home? They are going to want background checks and health evaulations for all adults in the home.

If you work 24/7 caring for the adult residents, how will you find time to care for a child?
