Why We Exist
The U.S. adopts more children than any other country: That means there are a lot of adoptive families right in our backyard who need access to information, support and services throughout the process.
Adoption begins with loss: All adoptive families find themselves coping with the lingering effects of trauma, grief and loss for all members of the family. You don’t want to go through that alone.
40% of adopted children are of a different race, culture or ethnicity than their adoptive parents: That presents a unique challenge: How can families help their children embrace their roots and a new normal?
Women who have struggled with infertility are 10 times more likely to have adopted: In many cases, the adoption comes after years of grief and loss. Community can help you cope with both the highs and the lows.
Adoption costs can range from $0 to $50,000: And there are a wide variety of ways to adopt. We can walk you through the process and help you find the option that’s right for you.
We are here to help.
At ASA, we are more than just the services we provide. We are a community of adoptive parents, children and adults who come together to share in the challenges and triumphs of the adoption experience. We know it takes a village — no matter how your family was made — so we built one, just for you.
We offer a variety of ways to connect with our community of members.
We host a number of different events throughout the year, creating multiple opportunities to connect with others in our community.
We created support groups for adoptive parents, adult adoptees and adopted teens to create a safe space for members of our community looking to share and connect.
This community is full of stories, insight and information. We created the ASA blog to talk about all that and more.
