It only takes one person to help a child thrive
Your home could be ideal for a waiting child. If you have patience, flexibility, a sense of humor, commitment and deep love to provide for a child, adoption could open your mind and heart in ways you may never have imagined.
We have paired hundreds of children with caring, single parents. Many of the children adopted by single parents are school-aged, or have an identified, significant medical or developmental condition.
Single Parents Can Adopt
There are opportunities for single men and women to adopt through our domestic and international programs. The eligibility requirements vary from program to program, and are subject to change.
Matches between children and single parents may happen via the traditional process in a small number of our international programs, but many more matches result from advocacy efforts in our Waiting Identified Child program.Learn About Our International Adoption ProgramsView Waiting Child Profiles
Our international programs are open to U.S. citizens living across the United States and abroad.
Adoption from Foster Care
Our foster care adoption program has placed many children with single parents living in Minnesota. These adoptions include children with known medical conditions, issues of abuse and neglect, older children and siblings. Our single-parent adoptive families will tell you that the challenges of this journey are many, and so are the rewards.Learn About Foster Care Adoption
Our foster care adoption program serves individuals living in Minnesota.
Domestic Infant Adoption
Through our domestic infant program, expectant parents choose an adoptive family for their child. Our experience has shown that single parents tend to wait longer than partnered couples, but with our networking and outreach approach, we will support and facilitate your adoption process for the best chances of matching with a birth family.Learn About Domestic Infant Adoption
