Forever Families Through Adoption

Who's Going To Adopt My Baby?

Married couples, unmarried couples, gay and lesbian couples and individuals can all adopt a child, but the reasons why they choose to adopt are many.

Some have come to terms with their infertility and find adoption a very natural thing to do. Others want to add to their existing family or have a desire to help a child from a different country, ethnic background or culture. Most feel that they‘d like to share the good things in their lives with a child who is less fortunate.

Forever Families Through Adoption carefully screens and pre-approves its adoptive family candidates. Social workers visit their home, they undergo criminal and other background checks and they are required to provide a number of personal references. They also are required to go through special training so that they are fully prepared for the unique issues of adoptive parenting before an adoption can take place. In fact, by the time our agency has approved adoptive parents for placement, we‘ve gotten to know them very well and feel confident they‘ll make good parents.

We ask each of our pre-approved adoptive family candidates to create a personal “birth parent letter” for you to review. That profile includes photos, a personal letter and a description of the prospective parent or parents‘ lifestyle, beliefs, hopes and expectations. You can select from among those candidates based on the dreams and desires you have for your child.

Adoption and the Child Tax Credit
With the 2019 tax-filing season underway, a critical issue for families filing for the Child Tax Credit using an Adoption Taxpayer Identification Number (ATIN) has been brought to our attention. As a result of tax law changes made in the 2017 tax reform law (known as the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act", P.L. 115-97), now only a Social Security Number (SSN) is acceptable for claiming the Child Tax Credit. As a result, the Child Tax Credit cannot be claimed using an ATIN (or any other type of taxpayer identification number other than an SSN).
