Post Adoption Services
“Read the file before looking at the pictures,” I urged my husband as I shared a referral with him. This is common advice in adoption: don’t fall in love with an adorable face...
Because adoption is a lifelong journey.
Children's Home and Lutheran Social Service support people of all ages who have a connection to adoption: adopted persons, their families, and the broader adoption community.
We're here to help you explore adoption, celebrate diversity and connect with others in the post adoption community. We believe everyone impacted by adoption and each member of the adoption circle deserves consideration and can benefit from access to lifelong support, education and resources.
Our post adoption opportunities are specially designed to help you as an individual—and your extended family and community—connect with personal identity, history, experience and culture.
Children’s Home and Lutheran Social Service provide the following Post Adoption Services regardless of your placing agency.
