Domestic Adoption

A Family in Bloom Adoption is licensed for all types of domestic adoptions. Our agency has been involved with designated adoptions, interstate adoptions, waiting children/foster care children placed through adoption exchanges, and domestic infant adoption. There are skilled staff available to provide birth parent counseling. Home study and post-placement services are available for domestic placements of all types. Our agency will continue to work with families in or outside of Colorado that have a designated adoption (matched birth parent) in Colorado. For families residing in our state, A Family in Bloom Adoption can assist if they are working with another adoption agency or attorney from outside of Colorado for a placement.

Our agency still occasionally has birth parents matches for our adoptive parents. However, given the falling numbers of birth parent relinquishments in our state, adoptive parents should rely primarily on a separate out-of-state agency for matching and placement purposes. We have experience with the ICPC process for placements across state lines.

A Family in Bloom Adoption has a separate domestic adoption program working with waiting children through the adoption exchanges for our Colorado families. The children available for adoption are coming out of the county foster care system, with their biological parents’ rights already having been relenquished or soon to be so. The presumption from the start of the placement is permanency and 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 school- aged children and teenagers.

“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.
