Adoption


Adoption is the transfer of parental rights from one person or couple to another person or couple. It is a permanent and legal process, which means adoptive parents have the same rights and responsibilities as biological parents.

Keeping Kids Safe matches children to adoptive homes while focusing on the special needs of the child. Keeping Kids Safe adoption assessors assist families in the adoption process by completing the additional work required to make adoption possible. We also provide adoptive home recruitment, and training, as well as family assessments

Who can adopt?

An adoptive applicant must be:

  • At least 18 years of age
  • May be single, married, divorced, or widowed
  • Own or rent their home
  • Have a stable income

What does it cost?

Keeping Kids Safe endeavors to assist children and adoptive families in achieving permanency. However, in order to help offset staffing and administrative costs associated with completing an adoption, fees must be charged.
