Project Description

Adoption Services

Concilio provides Adoption Services working with parents interested in adopting a child from the child welfare system. Services are provided in a multi-cultural, non-judgmental and confidential manner. Working with the Foster Care Program, Concilio facilitates the transition from foster parent to adoptive parent. Adoption can be a delicate process. Concilio permanency staff commit to compassion when working with adoptive families to find a forever home for a child. Concilio is a Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) affiliate licensed to conduct adoption services in Pennsylvania for timely effective permanency. How the adoption services program works:

  1. Child and Family Profiles
    1. The staff listens to the child’s or children’s and adoptive families’ story to ensure the match between adoptive parent and child is a good one. A thorough assessment is conducted to ensure both parties are ready to move forward, ensuring a safe and loving forever home.
  1. Child Preparation
    1. A permanency social worker conducts 10 sessions with a child to process and reflect on their journey within the child welfare system. Activities explore the transition into a home with a new family and explore any trauma and grief they have experienced. Preparation asks the child to reflect on what it meant to them to be part of the child welfare system and now whether they are comfortable to move out of the system. Most often child preparation is conducted on a one-on-one basis, between Concilio social worker and the child. When possible child preparation incorporates the fostering family and biological family. The goal is to get children ready to transition from a temporary home and enter a forever (or permanent) one.
  1. Adoption finalization
    1. Finalization prepares child and family for life after adoption; how the child welfare system works from adoption onwards, and what it means for an adoptive family to talk to their newest family member about the adoption process.

Parenthood requires love, not DNA.

Post Adoption Services

Post Adoption Services provide continued support if necessary to adoptive parents. Concilio’s goal is for children to remain in the safe and loving home provided when parents adopt. To sustain adoption, services after the adoption are sometimes necessary. Concilio offers advocacy, support groups, and respite services free
to any adoptive family in need at any time in the youth’s life.
