The reasons that prompt an individual or family to adopt are intensely personal. Once the decision to proceed with adoption has been made, JFS expertise helps move the process forward. JFS believes that every child deserves to have a permanent family that will offer unconditional love and help him or her reach their full potential. Whether building families through domestic, international or foster care adoptions, JFS strives to find homes for children. In any given year, enhanced by our Hague Certification, JFS works with approximately eighty families wishing to adopt.
Our commitment to families includes assistance and support that begins with their first phone call and continues beyond the finalization of their adoption. Waiting to adopt a child can be a lengthy and frustrating process. Over the years, the Adoption Program has established an excellent reputation based on warmth and understanding of the family experience. Aspiring parents know that when they come to JFS they are accessing not only a sliding fee scale but also expert staff who will act as their guide during the adoption process. Those who need the support of counseling services can speak with a JFS Counselor at any stage in their adoption.
JFS is proud, honored and privileged to be involved in the creation of families. We are dedicated to the success of each adoption we undertake.
