Our Post Adoption Program comes to the aid of families that have accepted the responsibility of adopting a child that has previously been in the state's foster care system. Many of these children have suffered abuse, neglect, and/or abandonment at the hands of their birth parents. It is the mission of our program to ensure that these families not only survive, but also thrive with healthy, whole relationships.
