We believe that all children are adoptable. Although there are still guidelines agencies follow to evaluate a prospective family’s (or person’s) eligibility to adopt, many of the traditional requirements associated with adoption such as minimum salary standards (which were set high), homeownership, marital status, physical handicaps, sexual preference, (to name a few ) no longer apply.
It is our belief that what constitutes a family is a stable home environment, lots of room in your heart, the desire to share in the joy a child can bring into your life, and an open mind to learn the skills necessary to nurture the adopted child.
The goal should be twofold: To meet the child’s needs and best interests, along with a strong commitment to work with the wishes, desires and rights of the prospective families. To this end, this should include a process of education and exploration of issues inherent in the adoption process.
Every child can grow and be productive if we only BELIEVE
If you believe in the dignity and value of each child as an individual, maximizing on the child’s abilities and strengths, you will work to develop each child to their full potential. Necessary development can occur only when quality training is made available to all parties involved. This would include Government, State, City, Local and Private agencies. Also included are the prospective families and the “children”.
It is best to encourage a proactive holistic approach to adoption and the placement process, focusing on strengthening all parties involved through pre- and post-placement involvement and training. To endeavour to assure that each child receives the quality of care and planning necessary for the prospective family unit to reach the highest level of functioning.
