Top Ten Reasons to Adopt a Teenager

From the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services Permanency Guide (originally developed by Alameda County Social Services Agency and the California Permanency for Youth Project)

The list was developed by the Oklahoma Youth Advisory Board:

1.   No diapers to change

2.   They sleep through the night

3.   They will move out sooner…but can still visit

4.   You don’t just get a child, you get a friend

5.   They will keep you up to date on the latest fashion

6.   No more carpools – they can drive you places

7.   No bottles, formula, or burp rags required

8.   They can help around the house

9.   They can learn from you

10. They can teach you how to operate your computer!
