It is important to understand that until the adoption is finalized the child placed in your home is considered a pre-adoptive foster child. Each foster parent and foster child has a bill of rights.
As an prospective adoptive parent you will also be a Mandatory Reporter. You are in a unique position to be aware of when a child reports potential abuse or neglect and you are required to report these allegations to the Child Protective Services Hotline.
Mandatory Reporting training and information can be found here.
