Becoming An Adoptive Parent
Our adoption program assists families with Adoption Through Foster Care, Private Domestic Adoption, and Stepparent Adoption.
Koinonia’s biggest priority is to provide a safe environment for children in foster care and prevent youth from entering the system if possible. Koinonia has several services put in place to give the best care to at-risk youth. In the case that children cannot be reunified with their biological families, we also work to find them a home open to adopting them through friends/family close to the youth or our vetted resource families.
We strive to find families who can best serve children who need the stable, loving, and permanent lifelong commitments that they deserve.
The ideal adoptive family is one who is loving, patient, supportive, and who is adopting to fulfill the needs of a child and not their own.
Whether you are adopting through foster care or private adoption, adoptive families go through a detailed home evaluation.
Some of the information that is gathered includes, but is not limited to:
- Personal and family background – including the applicant’s upbringing, marriage(s), life events, etc.
- Physical and health history of the applicants
- Education, employment and finances – including insurance coverage and child care plans if needed
- Support systems of the applicants
- Houshold and extended family relationships
- Motivation(s) to adopt
- Expectations in adoption
- Child ages and background the applicants can best serve
- Experiences and feelings about infertility (if applicable)
- Parenting and integration of the child into the family
- Criminal and child abuse background checks
