    Hello,

    I have a theoretical question about a process of adoption. If undocumented parents had a child in the United States, and was therefore legalized by birth, is it possible for an arrangement to be set up with (legal) foster parents to take in the child if the parents are to be deported? Is there a way to bypass the federal foster care system that some of the children would be subjugated to? Thank you!

    Many things are possible, many things are impossible.

    In the abstract, virtually anything is possible, and I can't see why the thing you described wouldn't be possible.

    Anyone can do anything - now if it's legal is another issue. Also things about the child's future will come up as well regarding school, medical etc.
