Creating a Family is an educational nonprofit not a child placing agency. We have partnered with ParentFinder to provide our Waiting Child Center that allows agencies to place information on their waiting kids on this site, but you will have to work with the agency to get more specific information on the child. Inclusion on this site is not an endorsement of any agency. Do your own research before you select an agency. We have resources to help in agency selection, including a multimedia e-Guide on on Choosing an Adoption Agency or Attorney.
Adoption professionals walk a fine line when trying to find home for harder to place children. We need to include enough information for you to know whether to contact the agency for more information, but we also want to protect the child’s privacy. There is no perfect balance that will be accepted by all, but we do not use the child’s real name, full birthdate, and include only fairly general information. The agency can provide more detail if you are interested.
And last, but not least, when viewing pictures of these adorable kids, it is easy to fall in love and go no further in determining if you are the right family for this particular child, and not every child you fall in love with will be a good fit. That is a big mistake. Spend time learning more about parenting a child with this special need or adopted at this age. Creating a Family has resources that can help prepare you at our Adoption A-Z Resource Guide and your agency will provide more detailed resources.
