What is AdoptionWorks?

AdoptionWorks is a fully licensed child-placing agency, which falls under the ministry of ChristianWorks in Dallas, Texas. We provide infant domestic adoption services to birth families adoptive couples and adoptees. We serve prospective adoptive families that live within 150 miles of our home office in Dallas and are able to serve a birth family seeking to make an adoption plan anywhere within the United States. AdoptionWorks has been providing child-placing services since 1967 and has placed over 800 children since that time. It is our belief and philosophy of the agency that open adoption is the most beneficial to all members of the adoption triad and seek to educate and facilitate openness for our clients. AdoptionWorks is proud to offer clinical post-adoption services, including search and reunion services, individual counseling or play therapy for members of the adoption triad and free support groups for children who have been adopted and their parents.

Adoption Education

The way we talk—and the words we choose—say a lot about what we think and value. When we use positive adoption language, we say that adoption is a way to build a family just as birth is. Choose the following, positive adoption language instead of the negative talk that helps perpetuate the myth that adoption is second best. By using positive adoption language, you will reflect the true nature of adoption, free of innuendo.

Positive adoption language can stop the spread of misconceptions such as these. By using adoption language, we educate others about adoption.
