Adoptive families provide a safe and nurturing home for children who cannot safely return to their birth family. Hundreds of children in Kansas are currently waiting for a loving adoptive home, and you can meet some of these children on the KVC Adoption Website. Most children who are adopted through KVC are adopted by their foster parents or a relative who has been providing care.
KVC provides families with preparation, resources, support, and events during the adoption journey to facilitate successful adoptions.
The greatest need for permanent, loving homes is for older children and sibling groups. We work by the mantra that “Children Can’t Wait.” KVC focuses on locating and selecting the best possible family for a child, rather than finding a child for a specific family.
Who needs to be adopted?
The children available for adoption through KVC are often:
- Age 10 and above
- Part of a sibling set of three or more who needs to be adopted together
- Have unique needs
While young children and babies do enter state custody, our first goal is to try and safely reunite the child with his or her birth parents. If reunification is not possible, relatives and familiar caregivers are the next best choice to care for them. Here is a list of agencies that specialize in adoptions of toddlers and babies:
- Adoption and Beyond
- American Adoptions
- Catholic Charities
- Christian Family Adoption
- From Heart to Home (through KCSL)
- Lifeline Children’s Service
Please consider becoming an adoptive family for children without a place to call home. You will be opening the door to countless opportunities for a child in need. Call 1(888) 655-5500 to learn more.
