It depends if it is a kinship placement or not.  If the child is related to you, you can file for adoption as part of the termination of parental rights or anytime thereafter.  If it is a kinship placement, the case worker should explore the possibility of you adopting the child as part of their permanancy plan for the little one. If this is NOT a kinship placement and you are a foster parent, you need to have the child in your care continuously for one year before you have standing to sue for custody/adoption of the child. Hope that helped some.
