Adoption Services

Our adoption services connect children who have suffered abuse and neglect with loving forever families. Adoption transfers all parental rights to adoptive parents, making the adopted child a legal member of the new family. Ask yourself if you feel called to open your heart and home to a local child or group of siblings. If so, please contact Kids Central today.

Kids Central is charged with providing adoption services for all five counties in Circuit 5 and contracts with its case management agencies to also provide adoption services. The Centers, LifeStream, and Youth and Family Alternatives recruit, train and licenses adoptive homes who are interested in adopting children from the child welfare system. They are also responsible for case management services to children available for adoption.

Kids Central continues to provide oversight and final approval for all the Adoption Subsidy files, Separation of Sibling Staffings, Post-Placement Staffings, and the Adoption Applicant Review Committee Meetings. The Post-Placement staffing is held 30 to 45 days after a child is placed in an adoptive home to assess the placement both from the adoptive family’s view and the child’s view. Any issues arising during the staffing can be addressed prior to finalization of the adoption.
