Adoption


When children are unable to be safely reunited with their families and are placed in the permanent custody of the agency by Juvenile Court, they become available for adoption.  


All the children available for adoption are currently in some form of out of home placement.  This means the parental rights of the child’s parents have been terminated, making the child legally free for adoption.


Foster parenting may, under some special circumstances, be an avenue for adoption.  Foster parenting can sometimes make it possible for a child to enter your home sooner than if you wait until a particular child becomes available for adoption.  In fact, adoptions by former foster parents make up a large percentage of our adoptions.


Adoption Facts

What is Adoption?

Adoption is the method by which adults become legal parents to children not born to them.

 

Who Can Adopt?

Adoptive parents can be:

  • Single or married
  • Homeowners or renters
  • With or without children
  • Parents who work outside the home
  • You need to be over 21 years of age, and if you are married, you need to have been married for at least one year.

 

How Long Does It Take?

The time spent in learning about and preparing for adoption varies.  On the average it can take three to six months.  How soon a child is placed with you can also depend on the age, gender, or health needs of the child you want.

 

Is Financial Assistance Available?

Yes, almost all of the “Special Needs” children will be eligible for a subsidy.  Financial assistance is based on the child’s background and special needs.  Most children are also eligible for medical coverage through Ohio Medicaid.
