You Gotta Believe! You Gotta Believe! strives to find adoptive parents for young adults, teens, and pre-teens before they age out of the foster care system and run the extremely high risk of becoming homeless. People interested in adopting are invited to a 10-week parenting course to help figure out if a lifetime family commitment to the teen is something they are ready to do. You Gotta Believe is the only organization in the U.S. that solely limits its practice to finding young adults, teens, and pre-teens in the foster care system permanent parents and families.
