Adoption Process

How Adoption Works

Adopting a child is one of the most challenging, rewarding things you’ll ever do. And to help you succeed, The Villages will be by your side at every step. We’ll help you learn about the kinds of adoption and which might be right for your family. We’ll also help you welcome your new child into your home.

But we don’t just guide you through the process itself. We’ll also support you after the fact with our comprehensive post adoption services. Whether you need help connecting with community resources, or you just need a hand filling out paperwork, these services will help make things easier so you can focus on your growing family.

And if you started out as a foster parent, we have adoption services for you, too. In many cases, we find that the best thing for a child is to be adopted by his or her foster family. We provide support services to help make it easier for families to navigate the process and achieve better outcomes.
