International Adoption Overview
Lutheran Social Services of Illinois (LSSI) has more than 40 years experience helping families adopt children from other countries. We will assist you every step of the way — from choosing a country, selecting an international agency and completing a home study — to beginning your new life with your adopted child.
LSSI has developed partnerships with reputable and highly regarded international placing agencies in order to help children from all over the world find homes with adoptive families in Illinois. These international agencies have been approved by the U.S. Department of State and the foreign government to facilitate adoptions with U.S. families.
You may have many questions — we are happy to meet with you personally to help you understand your options and determine if international adoption is right for you. To get started, contact us.
