Adoption Connection’s Experts in Adoption are all licensed master-level social workers who are certified adoption assessors. We have over 100 combined years of adoption experience to support you, encourage you, and guide you through the entire adoption process…and for years beyond.
And we recognize that adoption is more than the legal process in which birth parents transfer their rights to parent their child to adoptive parents who are then given full and permanent custody of the child.
Adoption is the ultimate expression of love. It is the bringing together of adoptive and birth parents who share a common goal – that their infant will be raised in a loving and secure environment.
So whether you are working to adopt, or are hoping to place your infant into a loving home, we are very excited you have decided to explore the possibility of adoption with Adoption Connection!

- Free pregnancy counseling and referral services for birth families
