Adoptions are as old as civilization itself with one of the oldest recorded adoptions being that of baby Moses. Adoption is a good choice for teens and women experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. We are dedicated in our belief that all children deserve a permanent and secure family. We provide support, counseling and other services to all members of the adoption triad.

The triad members consist of the birth parents, the child and the adoptive parents. Our Adoption program assists in finding homes for children so they can experience healthy development in a permanent secure family. We have experienced staff that is sensitive to the needs of those involved in the Adoption process.  It is our belief that a strong foundation is built upon professionalism, individual and personal attention and sensitivity to each individual's needs.

Whether you are considering an adoption plan for your child or you are seeking to be adoptive parents we are here to help you make an informed decision.

To learn more about adoption, we invite you to review the information provided within this web site and contact one of our Adoption Social Workers at 304-345-3894. Our goal is to provide information to all individuals interested in adoption.
