One unique aspect of ASC is the opportunity we offer to families to host a child for a summer. The purpose of this program is to find homes for older children whose chances of being adopted dramatically decrease as they age. By temporarily hosting one of these children, our hope is that we will be able to find the right forever family for a waiting child. If you’re set on adopting an infant, we are still happy to work with you.
ASC will help you adopt either domestically or internationally, depending on which is better for your family. The laws and costs are slightly different for domestic and international adoption, however. To research both and decide which is your preference, contact us online or by phone, and an adoption professional will help you compare them. An informed, well-researched decision is usually a decision you will feel comfortable making.
When you’re ready, ASC will help you complete your home study in accordance with all the policies of the Hague Convention. Your adoption professional will guide you through each of the steps of the paperwork, interviews, and home visit. The website gives detailed descriptions of each phase of the adoption process, including an approximate cost for each part.
If you are on the other side of adoption as a birth parent, ASC is also here for you. Placing your child for adoption can be a traumatic experience, and ASC will see to it that all the details (such as finances, medical care, transportation, housing, and counseling) are planned so you can focus on preparing for your baby to be born. We list profiles of families looking to adopt, so you can search through them and decide whom you think is a good fit for you and your baby. For your comfort, ASC even provides a text number, so you can counsel privately with an adoption professional.
No matter your involvement in the adoption process, ASC is thankful for your big heart. Adoption benefits the family a child joins, but most of all, it changes the life of a child forever. Everyone wants to be wanted. ASC understands that many Floridians want to grow their families through adoption and that many children wait to find families. Our goal is to connect parents and children together into a forever family.
