We are driven by a belief in the fundamental human rights of children to have security, opportunity and a loving family. Our child-centered approach, knowledgeable and caring professional staff, and unparalleled experience have made us one of the most trusted and well-respected child welfare providers for families all around the globe.
We focus on helping you, your children and your family through these key service areas:
We have a number of international programs dedicated to helping children of all ages and backgrounds find permanent, loving homes. As part of our programs, we work diligently to advocate for children who wait due to: age, identified needs, sensitive histories, or because they are a part of a sibling group.
Each country’s adoption process offers its own unique challenges and rewards. Our experienced staff will help your family prepare for adopting internationally with pre-adoptive training, in-country and travel resources, and ongoing support throughout every step of the process. We will also support families living in MD, VA, MN and Western WI with their home study process.
Our international programs are open to U.S. citizens living across the United States and abroad.Learn More About Your International Adoption Options
ADOPTION FROM FOSTER CARE
Our foster care adoption program serves children under state guardianship or tribal jurisdiction with a goal of permanency through adoption. We strive to support Minnesota families adopting from the U.S. foster care system–especially those seeking to create a permanent home for older children with special needs. We will help your family prepare for adopting children from foster care with a home study, pre-adoptive training, foster care licensing, and ongoing support throughout every step of the process.

DOMESTIC INFANT ADOPTION
Through our domestic infant program, expectant parents choose an adoptive family for their child. The relationships built in this program are open: birth and adoptive families work together to plan a relationship that goes beyond the placement of their child. We will help your family prepare to build your family through open adoption with a home study, pre-adoptive training, outreach resources, and ongoing support throughout every step of the process.
