Are your pregnant?

Are you pregnant and considering adoption? Often we hear birth parents say " I want to give my baby up for adoption." But you are not giving up, you are making a courageous and loving choice for you and your baby. Adoption Connection has a list of loving families waiting to adopt. To see a list of our families click here.

Until Adoption Connection closes our doors in the early part of 2018, we are still committed to bringing hearts together to build families through adoption by connecting birth parents with the waiting families whom have shared their journey with us - even if they have transferred to another agency. 


We are no longer providing adoption services or accepting new adoptive families, but as a private nonprofit Ohio Adoption Agency in Cincinnati, we can continue to provide referral services for birth parents and post-adoption services.


Change of Services


After nearly 75 years of helping to build families through adoption, Adoption Connection will no longer accept new client adoptive families or make new adoption placements. We will complete all pending adoptions and will continue to assist clients as needed with guidance and information, refer birth parents to our waiting families, and provide post-adoption services.


This was a difficult, but necessary, decision that involved a number of considerations.


We care deeply about our birth parents and adoptive families.  To ease your transition, we were resolute in identifying another adoption service that we could recommend.  That agency is Bellefaire JCB (Jewish Children's Bureau), a nonprofit, accredited and licensed agency with a strong reputation that aligns with our values.


Bellefaire JCB, a Cleveland-based organization, has an existing and growing presence in Greater Cincinnati. It was founded as an orphanage in 1868 and has become the nation's longest-established child placement/adoption agency. Their adoption specialists are degreed and licensed therapists, social workers, and certified adoption assessors. They have a Hague-Accredited International Adoption program, and the agency is licensed by the Ohio Departments of Job and Family Services and Mental Health.


Of course, the choice of a new adoption agency is completely at the discretion of each adoptive family or birth parent.  We merely wanted to make a recommendation, based on our knowledge and experience, in an effort to help our families and birth parents as they continue on their journey.  We will be happy to provide a list of other adoption agencies in Ohio with current ODJFS certification.


If you have any questions or concerns regarding this new transition, please contact Adoption Connection at 513-489-1616 or
