Domestic Adoption

A Family in Bloom Adoption is licensed to perform all types of domestic adoptions. Our agency has been involved with designated adoptions, interstate adoptions, waiting children/foster care children through adoption exchanges and domestic infant adoption. We can also work with kinship, step-parent and second parent adoptions.

Our Domestic Infant Program is only open to Colorado adoptive parents with a goal of matching birth parents that generally reside in this state. We strive to support all partners involved in the process with the best interests of the child at the center of our work. The vast majority of infant adoptions are through an open adoption process, but closed adoptions sometimes occur. Some of our families choose to have on-line profiles on the agency web site.

A Family in Bloom Adoption has a separate domestic adoption program working with waiting children through the adoption exchanges for our Colorado families. These are children that are coming out of the county foster care system whose biological parents’ rights have already been or are soon likely to be terminated. The presumption from the start of the placement is towards adoption. Waiting children are to be found in counties in the 50 states throughout the United States. There is the greatest need for permanent families for children of school age.

“The child must know that he is a miracle,
that since the beginning of the world,
there hasn’t been, and until the end of the world
there will not be, another child like him.”
— Pablo Casals, cellist.
