After a child is placed in your home, you will begin post-placement/post-adoption services. Typically, the Agency that completed your home study is the same agency that will complete your post-placement/post-adoption reporting. These reports vary in frequency and length based on the details of your adoption.
Even after your reports are completed and your adoption is finalized, Family & Children’s Agency is always available to support you. We provide the following services and resources:
- Support as your child grows, including the Adoption Assistance Program
- Annual social events and educational seminars
- Agency newsletters, notices of workshops, play group networking, and parent activities
- Referrals to adoption-competent support and services
Post Adoption Support
Family & Children’s Agency partners with the UCONN Health Adoption Assistance Program (AAP) to offer post-adoption support to families free of charge.
The AAP team consists of licensed social workers and case managers with extensive training and background knowledge in adoption. Services are provided throughout the State of Connecticut on a voluntary, short-term basis.
Services include assessment and brief counseling, referrals, case management, school advocacy, parent support, and more. AAP is not a crisis service.
For more information on the Adoption Assistance Program, please call (860) 679-4006 or visit the AAP website.
Family & Children’s Agency provides search services for adoptees and birth parents who may be looking to learn more information and fill in the missing pieces. FCA maintains files for those adopted through FCA domestically and internationally as well as other Connecticut Agencies. If you believe FCA can help you, please contact us.
If you are under 18 years old, you will need parental consent to begin a search.
