Adoption Services

Table Of Contents:

    Adoption Services are provided without regard to income to both those seeking to surrender a child for adoption and those who are desirous of adopting a child.  Parents who are unwilling or unable to care for their child are assisted in the surrender process as well as counseled and advised of their legal rights.  They are also offered services as an option to surrendering the child. This unit will also institute legal proceedings to terminate parental rights in situations that warrant such action.

    Adoptive parents are recruited and carefully screened. They are counseled, trained and provided services during the adoption process and for a period of twelve (12) months after finalization of the adoption. Subsidies are provided to those families that meet the criteria for eligibility.
