Adoption Truth: Avoiding CPS

Posted by Lifetime Adoption on November 24, 2017

Some women worry that their current situation will cause her child to be taken by CPS (Child Protective Services) and then put into the overcrowded foster care system. The truth is, adoption gives you a say in your child's future.
