Our Services & Expertise

Adoption by Shepherd Care is a non-profit private adoption agency founded in 1980. We service all parties in the adoption process, both expectant parents and hopeful adoptive parents.

Florida families can complete the entire adoption process with our agency for domestic adoptions. For non-Florida residents, we coordinate with a home study agency in your home state to make your process as smooth as possible.

Adoption by Shepherd Care can provide international home study services for a Florida family working with a Hague accredited primary provider seeking to adopt from almost any country. This agency can be located anywhere in the U.S. Adoption by Shepherd Care will coordinate with your primary agency to conduct your international home study according to the laws and guidelines of the State of Florida, US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and the country from which you are seeking to adopt.

Comprehensive & Confidential

Our counselors are ready to walk alongside expectant parents exploring the option of adoption. Come learn about the adoption process, Florida laws, and choosing a family for your baby, in a way that honors you and your journey.

 
Domestic/International Program Services

We provide comprehensive adoption services including home studies, post-placement services, and pre-arranged adoption services.

 
Consultations

We offer initial consultation meetings to walk prospective adoptive parents through the process, discuss Florida laws, and introduce our agency.

 
Home Study

The home study typically takes 2-4 months and results in a document that will be used by the courts and recommends you for adoption. An approved home study is required to be eligible to adopt a child. The process involves a series of interviews, background checks, references, and paperwork gathering. Our experienced adoption specialists will walk you through each step and provide the guidance, training, and assessment you need to prepare to bring your little one home.

 
Profile Book

Profile Development and Review or the "Profile Book" is a book that introduces you and your family to expectant parents and is the way an expectant parent chooses a family. Our profile coordinator will help you create a profile book that reflects your personality, voice, and heart.

 
Post Placement / Post Adoption Services

After your child comes home, one of our Adoption Specialists will meet with you to see how everyone is doing and produce the post reports for the court or the country of origin.

 

We specialize in competent and compassionate adoption services for all parties involved in the process.

What Our Clients Say

 
Nicole & Cale

Adoption by Shepherd Care was great to work with. They keep you informed and you always feel like you have a clear line of communication with them. They are on top of it!

We were matched within a WEEK of our profile going active and brought our bundle of joy home just 6 weeks later. Our son’s birthmother was amazing, strong, and gave us the best gift of our entire lives. We love our son more than I can ever describe.

I felt confident that our agency was treating our son’s birthmother with integrity and respect and also providing her with the necessary support before and after placement. We worked with Heidi and Emily who do a fabulous job.

Finding out I was pregnant, a feeling of worry washed over me. I sat for about two hours just thinking about what I should do. I prayed for guidance and called Shepherd Care. Thanks to these nice, professional, and compassionate people my adoptive story has a happy ending.

When God first put it on our hearts to grow our family through adoption we didn’t know where to start. Some friends had adopted their two children through Adoption By Shepherd Care and highly recommended them. While our initial meeting was full of an overwhelming amount of information, Terri immediately made us feel comfortable, took time to share the mission of their agency, asked and answered countless questions and was honest about all the process would entail. Ryan and I knew before leaving the office we were ready to start on our journey with the help of ASC. Every staff member we worked with was warm, caring, honest, encouraging, and truly cared about helping make our dream of adding a third child to our family a reality. They helped us walk through and complete our home study, create our profile, and share our profile with birth moms whom they felt we would be a good match.

At just over a year, we got “the call” that a birth mother had chosen our family to place her daughter with. While the 8 weeks of waiting felt extremely long and scary, our counselor Angela kept us updated on her meetings and appointments and was the one who called with the news our baby girl was born. She and Terri met us at the hospital for our introduction to our daughter and shared in one of our most joyful moments. We can’t say enough good things about ASC and tell anyone who asks how wonderful our experience was. Not only did they walk alongside us in our journey but they also were right beside Kinsey’s birth mom and made sure she was cared for as she made the sacrificial decision in love that changed our lives forever.

At 21 years old and already the mother to two young girls, I knew adoption had to be an option. Thanks to Shepherd Care I was fortunate to have plenty of time to connect with my baby’s adoptive family before giving birth — and it’s a relationship that continues strong today.

Our family has been incredibly blessed through adoption. We have enjoyed working with Adoption by Shepherd Care for several years and didn't hesitate to work with them when we started our second adoption process. With the strength and courage of a birth mother, we were able to become parents to our beautiful daughter in 2017. Waiting for an adoption match can be hard, but everyone working with Shepherd's Care was great at answering questions very promptly, encouraging us, always willing to lend a listening ear, and praying for us.

We enjoyed working with Terri, Heidi, Kira, Marilyn, Nidia, and all the other support workers. Starting an adoption process can feel daunting, but they were able to guide us through it. We are ever so grateful for all the support Shepherd Care Ministries has given us, and the excitement they shared with us when our daughter was placed into our arms for the first time! – Travis, Shannon, Kalissa & Aaliyah
