Welcome to Your Adoption Journey

There are many children waiting for a loving, caring, supportive place to call home.

Adoption can be the best way to give them the life and security they need, providing a sense of belonging and a supportive place to call home. Adopting a child is a life-changing experience and is a commitment that should be considered carefully. We are here to explain the process, answer your questions, and provide guidance.

Types of Adoption

Relative/Kinship Adoption

We encourage relatives and persons considered kin to adopt if they can meet the needs of the child. Relatives are typically not required to take TIPS-MAPP training, but they still must complete both an adoption packet and Adoptive Family Assessment.

Adopt Only

Families that adopt without becoming licensed foster care providers. Eligibility requires meeting one of these criteria: adopting children aged 7 to 18, accepting children with moderate-to-severe needs, or adopting sibling groups of three or more to ensure stable, supportive homes.

Foster to Adopt

Although we work to enable every child in foster care to eventually return home, sometimes that’s not possible due to various factors. In such cases, families already licensed to provide respite and regular foster care may adopt a child placed in their home, creating permanent, loving connections.

Our organization seeks loving, supportive families who can provide for children’s needs while they are going through the separation and loss of their birth family and becoming a permanent part of a stable, loving family. We provide training and support services to families throughout the process, for those who want to adopt or foster-to-adopt.

Adoptive Parent Testimonial

From Uncertainty to Family

“After that first time in court, back in year one, we came back home, and I looked her in the eye and said, ‘You know, we’re probably going to end up raising those kids,’” says Scott. “She just smiled and said, ‘Yeah, you’re probably right.’ Four years later, we’ve got all three of them.”
