The new adoption website will be launched November 30th, 2012!

And thank you for your interest in learning more about adoption!

In Waterloo Region there are many children of all ages who are waiting to find an adoptive family. Could you be the family we are looking for?  We invite you to explore the possibility of adoption as a way of starting or expanding your family.  This site can provide you with some preliminary information.  When you are ready to learn more, please contact a Recruitment Worker at 519-576-0540.

Adoption is one of the key ways that our Agency provides permanent loving homes for children and youth who cannot remain with their birth families.
Adoption is a compassionate gift of family to a child or children in need of permanent, nurturing relationships. Unfortunately, some parents are unable to care for their children in a safe manner and their children come into the care of a Children’s Aid Society. Other parents do not feel they can provide a permanent home for their child and decide to make an adoption plan for him or her.

Adoption can have a dramatically positive impact on your family and in the life of a child or youth!

Adoption Changes Lives
Some of our adopted children and their families talk about what adoption has meant to them.
