ADOPTION SERVICES

WHAT IS ADOPTION?
Adoption is the legal and social process in which a child who is born to one set of parents becomes the child of another parent(s). The adoptive parents then assume all legal rights, obligations, and responsibilities of parents to the child.

WHO ARE THE CHILDREN AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION?
The children are in the foster care system and in the legal custody of Rowan County Department of Social Services.

 They are just like any other kids in our community. Most are school age--between the ages of five (5) and seventeen (17). Many have brothers and sisters who want to stay together. They are Asian, Bi-racial, Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic, and Native American. Some children require special love, patience and on-going medical/psychological services because they have experienced abuse, neglect, or abandonment.

It is the policy of Department of Health and Human Services to provide services, care, benefits, and assistance to all qualified persons without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, or political belief.
