Considering adoption? You’ve come to the right place.

We’ve been bringing families together through adoption since 1902.

Adoption from foster care

Hundreds of Florida children are waiting for a family to call theirs forever. You could turn their dream into a reality.

Most of these children are older than age 7 and have brothers and sisters. Many also have special behavioral and/or emotional needs that require steadfast commitment and extra care from their families.

Call us. Then, get ready for your journey:

  • Attend an orientation session
  • Complete 21 hours of specialized training
  • Complete a thorough home study (we’ll ask lots of questions!)
  • Complete a home health inspection by the Department of Health
  • Complete background, employment and reference checks
  • Get ready to change lives – including your own

Age requirements

You must be at least 21 years old and in good health
