Adoptive Parent Information
Adoptions Throughout the United States
If you are an individual or couple looking to adopt, our adoption agency
can provide you with the information you need. You may have a number of
questions pertaining to the process, including whether you are eligible.
We can explain the process and requirements in detail. At Adoption ARC,
our goal is to help generate relationships with adoptive families as they
navigate the adoption process. This is accomplished by remaining in contact
with them. We stand by our adoptive families through each step of the
process and after the process is completed.
Our Adoption Service Qualifications
Licensed to provide adoption, child welfare, and foster care services in
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, Adoption ARC has been helping
families for more than 23 years. Our goal is to maintain high ethical
standards while finding safe homes for children. To that end, we have
been recognized by all three state agencies:
- Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare
- New Jersey Division of Human Services
- Delaware Department of Services for Children, Youth, and Their Families
Determining Eligibility As An Adoptive Family
If you are wondering whether you are eligible to adopt, you can speak with our
adoption agency for assistance. Whether you are single, married, divorced, or in a nontraditional
relationship, you may be eligible as long as you are prepared to give
the child a permanent, loving, and safe home. No matter what race, religion,
or ethnicity you are, you will need to have a valid home study performed.
Additionally, a child abuse and criminal background check will have to
be conducted. We can help match you with a child in a manner that meets
all parties' needs.
Helping Adoptive Parents Build Their Family
Since 1994, we have been helping adoptive parents build their families
by successfully navigating them through the adoption process and then
assisting them with some of the unique challenges that they will face.
If you are seeking to adopt, Adoption ARC offers full services to both
adoptive families and birth parents before, during, and after the procedure.
Because we understand that adoption is a lifelong process, we provide
adoptive parents who have worked with our adoption agency continued care
and support services.
