Our Mission

Caring for Kids, Inc. is a private non-profit, full-service adoption and foster care agency serving the entire state of Ohio. We believe that every child, regardless of gender, race, nationality, age, or special need, deserves a family. Through education and support, Caring for Kids, Inc. is dedicated to creating stability for children and families.
When I found out I was pregnant, I sought out an adoption agency that would provide me with the amount of openness I desired in my adoption. When I met with Caring For Kids, I knew that they would be able to address my needs as a birth mother–not only in what I desired in adoptive parents, but my personal, emotional and medical needs as well. Throughout the course of my pregnancy, I was able to develop a strong relationship with the adoptive parents of my child, they have become a second set of family to me, and me to them.

Without the support of the Caring for Kids staff, I know this process would have been much more difficult. Not once did I ever feel judged for my decision; I was given the information I needed and was able to choose the path that I felt was right for me and my child.
