a child is waiting for you...

San Diego County Adoptions is a fully licensed public adoption agency which serves all members of the adoption triad: adoptees, birth families, and adoptive parents. Both voluntary relinquishments as well as adoptions of children from the foster care system are handled by the agency, which is staffed by professional social workers. Information on our no-obligation Orientation Meetings is available on the Getting Started page or by calling 1-877-792-5437(KIDS). Ongoing professional education and training classes about adoption issues are another benefit offered by the agency.

Children available for adoption range from infants to teens. There is a special need for homes for older children, sibling groups, African American children, and children with emotional or medical challenges. A subsidy is available for children adopted from the foster care system so that income will not be a barrier to those who can offer a loving permanent home to a waiting child.
