Adoption Program

Making a Difference Throughout New Jersey

As the needs of our community change, we respond by doing what we can to make a difference.

Adoption Program

Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (LSMNJ) began with the establishment of an orphanage in Jersey City in 1904. The LSMNJ Adoption Program has been a licensed adoption agency since 1948. We offer a multi-faceted statewide adoption program that is focused on building healthy families and supporting all those touched by adoption. We are dedicated to serving all people regardless of faith, income, race, and marital status. We provide compassionate, caring services for all those involved in the adoption process. We place both infants and older children into adoptive homes through our Open Infant Adoption Program and our Waiting Child Adoption Program.
