Whether you adopt from the U.S. or from abroad, our team of knowledgeable social workers has over 100 years of experience to guide you through every stage...from orientation to finalization to post-adoptive services.
Although we specialize in placing infants under the age of 6 months, our expertise also covers international, identified, relative, and step-parent adoption services.
What is adoption?
Legally, adoption is the legal process in which birth parents transfer their rights to parent their child to adoptive parents who are then given full and permanent custody of the child. It grants to the adoptive parents all the rights and responsibilities of a legal parent, and gives the adopted child all the social, emotional, and legal rights and responsibilities of a family member.
Yes, adoption is a legal process…and it is so much more. It is opening your heart, your home, your family, and your life to give your adopted child a loving and secure future.
Who can adopt?
Adoption Connection, which is an Ohio-licensed private child placing agency, is welcoming to all regardless of the number of children, religion, race, sexual orientation, marital status, or age.
