Leake & Watts has experienced outstanding success in our Adoption Services program and finds stable, secure, and caring homes for approximately 60 children each year through our Family Foster Care program. When they cannot be reunited with their birth parents, children of all ages in foster care find homes with loving adoptive families.
Many of the children in need of adoptive families have suffered trauma, abuse or neglect. We strive to find permanent, nurturing homes for these children as quickly and safely as possible. Many, if not most, of our foster parents create lasting bonds with children and adopt those in their care. For other foster parents, adoption may not be an option. In such cases, prospective parents are introduced to children and work with our staff to make sure that the potential adoption is a good and positive match for everyone. In many cases, we find parents who are able to adopt groups of siblings and provide much needed continuity for children.
All through the adoption process, we provide the support and care necessary for children and their adoptive parents to build a loving, nurturing new family together. To smooth this transition, we provide counseling services and help adoptive parents understand the cultural traditions of their children. Upon request, our staff helps families who seek assistance after adoption with medical, financial, and supportive needs. When needed, we also provide support services to terminally ill parents who wish to plan for their children’s future.
