Adoptive Parents

Families today have a wide range of adoption options when deciding how to build their families. FSW/Adoption & Children’s Services has over 60 years of experience in working with families adopting U.S. born infants, and 30 years of international homestudy work.

Parents Adopting Children Today (PACT)

Over the decades, we have added new services to further our mission of finding a forever family for every child. In response to changes in the child welfare system, we developed Parents Adopting Children Today (PACT) in 2013.

We work with singles, couples and families who have at least one thing in common–they want to open their hearts and homes to a child who is in foster care who needs a permanent family. Prospective adoptive parents can enter PACT at any of several points along their adoption journey: the homestudy process, receiving parent education utilizing the Deciding Together curriculum, or using our Search & Match services for a child or sibling group that is the right fit for a particular family.
