TRADITIONAL
We are committed to working with adoptive parents to build their family and find the right child for their family and the right family for every child. The children placed through our traditional program can be of any race and are primarily newborn infants. Average wait times to be matched in the traditional program tend to be about 6-18 months but can vary greatly based on your comfort levels and the type of situations you want to be considered for. The traditional program is designed for prospective adoptive families that may not be as open or as comfortable with higher risk situations.

EXTRA CARE
Adoptive families who are flexible regarding family history, health, and level of openness typically have shorter waiting times and may qualify for the Extra Care Program. Average wait times to be matched in the extra care program tend to be less than 6 months, but again varies greatly based on your comfort levels and the type of situations you want to be considered for. We have a high need for families to be open to the categories of this program. We strongly suggest speaking with a physician, discussing with your home study provider, and talking to our adoptive parent department staff to help you decide if this program is right for your family. Families that are open to at least 5 of the 8 below are eligible for the extra care program and are still considered for traditional cases as well.
  • Completely Open Adoption
  • No Pre-Natal Care
  • Poly-Substance Abuse
  • Significant Mental Health History (bi-polar schizophrenia)
  • Hepatitis C
  • Opiate Treatment
  • IV Drug Use
  • Safe Haven

IDENTIFIED ADOPTION
If you are an adoptive family that has already identified a birth parent who wishes to place their child with you for adoption, we can assist. Heart of Adoptions, Inc. can help you with home study and post placement services, birth parent interviews and counseling, relinquishment, and legal finalization. The agency's fees for assisting with an identified adoption vary, depending on the extent of the services provided, but are generally much lower than our other programs. We can also assist in identified adoptions of older children that may or may not be in your care already.

INTERVENTION
Florida allows a birth parent, whose children are in the care and custody of the foster care system but have not had their rights involuntarily terminated to voluntarily sign a consent for adoption and have their child placed in a permanent adoptive home rather than staying in foster care. This allows a birth parent to select an adoptive family, to get picture and letter updates, and to have some control over the situation. A birth parent may not be in a position to parent their child, but they still deserve the right to choose where their child will grow up.

We are here for you 24/7. You can reach us any time of the day or night by calling our toll-free number 1-800-GO-ADOPT for all urgent matters.
