At Pathways, MI, we understand that the decision to terminate parental rights and move towards Adoption is one with a lifelong impact for the children involved and is therefore not a decision to be taken lightly. However, once that decision is made, we believe that placement planning must begin immediately. Our trained and compassionate staff members understand this and are committed to considering every factor and issue that may impact a child’s placement for adoption.
There are children in need of of adoptive families. In the U.S. alone, more than 129,000 children who were permanently removed from their homes as a result of abuse, neglect or abandonment wait in foster care to be adopted. Every child deserves the chance to succeed. Everything a parent, organization or community can do to support adoptive families makes our society stronger.
