At LFS, our mission is to offer services that strengthen, heal and provide hope for individuals and families. Since 1948 we have been helping to build families through infant, designated, and international adoption by providing support, education, and counseling. As a full service Colorado adoption agency, our adoption and pregnancy counselors work closely with clients as they consider and prepare for adoptive parenthood. We are committed to serving children and families regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation.
The adoption process can be overwhelming and confusing, but we can help! Whether you are looking to adopt, you’re working with an expectant mother or you want to search for your birth relatives, our counselors will work with you throughout your journey.
We work with you and the birth family to have an honest, loving commitment for the best interest of the child.
This program is for families seeking the opportunity to adopt a child who lives outside of the United States. LFS is a Hague Accredited Colorado adoption agency that partners with the international adoption agency you choose to help you bring your child home to Colorado.
Designated adoption is typically where the adoptive family is connected with a birth family prior to agency involvement. LFS provides the mandatory relinquishment counseling for the birth family as well as the education, training, home study, and post-placement services to the adoptive family.
Locating birth relatives can be very fulfilling for many people who have searched, while others have had less than positive experiences. The process of searching is deeply personal and it may uncover unanticipated emotions. What are your options?
Any party involved in an adoption in Colorado must work with a licensed Colorado agency. LFS processes private interstate adoptions in accordance with the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children (ICPC). All states are members of the ICPC.
It is no secret that adoption can be expensive. At LFS we work with families helping them achieve their dreams with adoption.
