    Intercountry Adoption

    Each year, hundreds of children join their adoptive families through the well-established, accredited international adoption programs at Lutheran Social Service and our partner, Children's Home Society of Minnesota. We work with partners in the United States and around the world to find loving families for children--whatever their needs.

  • Working With Us

    We are dedicated to promoting the caring, knowledge, and understanding that is needed to prepare you for the challenges and rewards of adoption and to support your family as it grows and matures.

    Our international adoption program staff is comprised of individuals who specialize in the adoption of children from each country with which we work. Most of our staff are uniquely qualified for their role; some are adoptive parents, others are adopted persons; some have traveled in their assigned country, others were born there; all have a passion for creating permanency for children in need.
