Before you know it, it will be time to begin thinking about a college education for your child (and how you will be paying for it!).  Many of you may already be thinking about and planning for this time.  Below is a list of resources for D.C., Maryland, and Virginia families interested in securing a college education for their child who has been in foster care or was adopted at an older age. Additionally, if your child was adopted outside of the local area, you may want to check the resources available from that state, as many offer similar opportunities.
