Adoption makes clear something that is true in all life - we are interdependent of one another. It is imperative that we create an environment for positive decision making, made in partnership with one another. Without the security of knowing that adoption will provide the child with a hoped for future the birthparents know they cannot provide, an adoption decision will never be made.
Our agency is a small one. We pride ourselves on being able to provide personal and individual attention to our clients. The number of birthmothers seeking to place children through agencies never equals the number of waiting parents. Since our agency is small, our list of waiting parents is not extensive. However, prospective adoptive parents should expect a waiting period which can vary widely.
For any adoption in the State of Wisconsin, the prospective parents must have a current approved homestudy and there must be a child placing agency willing to accept guardianship of the child and to provide post-placement supervision. Our agency provides these services, as well as assisting in International adoptions, Independent adoptions, Step-parent, and Relative adoptions.
