Our adoptive families want to build a genuine relationship with you.


"Everyone at OA&FS has been very sensitive and understanding during this difficult time. I love the adoptive parents I chose more than I ever could have imagined. I'm glad they are together (with my child) and that I am a part of their lives. The openness is invaluable to me." - OA&FS Birth Parent

"This agency came through like none of us would have imagined. My baby was very fortunate to be placed in such good hands with such a great family." - OA&FS Birth Parent
