A loving home can completely change the outlook of a child's life. For more information on adopting a child, call (209) 385-3000 ext. 5516.
Adoption provides a permanent, loving home and a family that continues even after the child turns 18. Children are able to have stability in their lives, which is an important quality for child development.
To help with bringing a new child into the home, Aid-to-Adoptions provides cash assistance to adoptive families. During the adoption process, ask your social worker about Aid-to-Adoptions.
