Adopt-A-Child, Inc., is a licensed, non-profit adoption agency dedicated to the ideal of bringing together couples or individuals seeking to build their families with foreign-born infants or children who need homes. The children we identify for adoption have been irrevocably released by their parents or other relatives due to death or abandonment. These youngsters are orphans according to U.S. and international legal definitions. Therefore, in accordance with the laws concerned, they are fully available for adoption.
Our staff of trained professionals assists our families during all aspects of the adoption process. We place an average of 100 children with couples and individuals who are U.S. citizens, each year.
We support and educate our clients, empowering them to make the best decision for their particular situations. Our focus throughout the process is on social service, to ensure the best possible adjustment of children and parents to their new families.
Adopt-A-Child has developed a strong network of relationships with adoption officials in many regions in Russia where we work, gaining a reputation for unquestionable reliability and integrity. We have developed a trained, experienced and well-supervised staff with whom we communicate closely, and are able to direct via phone, fax, and e-mail. We also make regular visits to Russia in order to monitor operations.
We are a full-service agency providing not only adoption assistance but also pre- and post-adoption support counseling. Among our services, we maintain an active parent network to provide a forum for education, socialization, recreation and mutual support. Additionally, we publish a newsletter to share information about our activities, recent developments concerning foreign adoptions and parenting issues, especially as they affect adoptive parents.
We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color or national origin.
Adopt-A-Child is fully licensed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and we are members of the National Council for Adoption and the Joint Council on International Children's Services.
