Opening Hearts, Changing Lives
Children in foster care, particularly older youth, are waiting to be adopted. The Indiana Adoption Program, welcomes responsible, caring adults who are ready to share their time, their hearts, and their lives with our waiting children. When you adopt a waiting child, you will be giving that child a permanent family and another chance in life. Every child needs a loving, committed, safe, and permanent family.
We encourage you to use our website to learn about the children waiting for a home in Indiana. We trust you will find it an informative and useful guide as you make this most important decision to parent a child. If you would like more information about the adoption process, you can also call us at 1-888-25ADOPT.
