Become an adoptive parent

Becoming an adoptive parent

Thank you for your interest in the Adoption Program of Children’s Aid Society in Clearfield County. Our agency began providing adoption services in 1985, and we currently offer a full range of adoption services to prospective adoptive families in several counties within central and western PA. We offer a wide range of services to assist both single and two-parent families with all types of adoptions including infant, international, and special needs children.

You may download our Welcome Packet, or contact us to have one mailed to you. In it, you will find a brochure about the program, a handout explaining the most up-to-date options for adoption, a copy of our adoption fee structure, as well as, an application and confidential disclosure statement. If you would like to move forward with becoming an adoptive family, simply complete the application and confidential disclosure statement and submit it to us along with a non-refundable $100.00 application fee. After we have received your completed application packet, we will contact you to schedule an in-person meeting to provide an overview of the program and adoptive family approval process. This meeting also provides an opportunity to become better acquainted and answer any questions you might have.

Children’s Aid Society appreciates your interest in becoming an adoptive family. We look forward to working with you in the future
