Older Child Adoptions
Adoption Options has been bringing children and loving families together since 1948. Adopting a child is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make and we’ll be there to help you every step of the way. Adoption Options provides counseling and education to help you make the decision that’s right for you and your family. Our Older Child Program helps to match our pre-adoptive families with children from the foster care system throughout the country. These children are not able to return to their birth families and need a safe, permanent family to call their own. Every child deserves a loving family – could you be that family?
Who are the “older children”?
There are more than 118,000 children across the nation who are currently waiting to be placed in an adoptive home. They are in the custody of the state in which they reside and live in foster homes or residential facilities. They have been removed from the care of their birth family due to neglectful or abusive circumstances. “Waiting children” often have physical or emotional problems due to circumstances inflicted upon them by others. They often have developmental delays or learning disabilities. They need a nurturing family of their own who offers care, protection, and the opportunity for growth and development.
Is there a child waiting for you?
Adopting a child with special needs, though demanding and challenging, offers endless possibilities and rewards. It is truly a priceless gift to offer a loving home to a child who may have never experienced security and respect, and to offer dependability to a child who may have never felt trust.
