Our Mission - We recognize the right of every child in the United States and throughout the world to find a loving, permanent family who will meet her or his individual needs.

Our vision focuses on making a difference in the lives of children remaining in institutional care through education and humanitarian efforts.

In 2019, Adopt merged with Bay Area Adoption Services. Learn more about the History of both organizations here:

Our staff is committed to providing professional, comprehensive services emphasizing meeting and responding to the needs of our culturally diverse community while reflecting on the changing adoption environment and providing continuous quality improvement, compassion, and generosity.

Our Board of Directors comprises community members who care deeply about Adopt's mission. Our Board Members contribute time, talent, and financial support to ensure Adopt's programs run smoothly. We pride ourselves on the diversity of lived experiences our Board Members bring to their work with Adopt. Our Board includes members who bring perspectives as adoptive parents, adoptees, and birth/first family members.

Adopt International provides compassionate, inclusive adoption services for first and adoptive families. Children's welfare is at the heart of everything we do.

Requirements to become a foster parent

Many do not realize the need for new resource families in California. The number of foster kids outnumber the foster families who can provide short or long-term care. Foster advocates work hard to find places for these children, but it is not easy.

The latest 2021 report from the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System (AFCARS) report in California says there are:

  • 47,871 kids in California's foster care system
  • 22,892 who entered foster care
  • 15,386 foster kids awaiting adoption
  • California foster kids across all ages, with a median of 8 years
  • 33% whose foster child case plans include adoption

A child's median time in the California foster care system is over a year at 16.8 months. 13% spend 3-4 years in foster care.

California needs foster parents to take in multiple children if they have the time and energy to care for them. Sibling groups often need care, and it is essential to support these family bonds. In California, it is challenging to find homes for teenagers, though they need stable environments and reliable adults to support them.

Even 1 star is waste. They expect to just pay fee and shut our mouths. As it is we went to them after going thru lot f heart ache for not able to have kids. They treated us as puppets and rejected us saying we are not ready. Please don't fall into their trap. You will be left with heart ache. They don't even explain anything and reject you if you ask for any change after all the pain with paper work.
