Biography/Description:
Since our inception, Crossroads has found homes for more than 4,000 children. Approximately 1/3 are children from the United States and 2/3 are adopted internationally. We have waiting children in China, Colombia and the Philippines. Many of the children placed we place are being older, part of a sibling group, or having special needs.
The Board and staff at Crossroads believe wholeheartedly that adoption is a valid method of family building. Crossroads continues to work with each parent and child as an individual with unique potential and needs and to accord each of them dignified caring assistance.

Crossroads employs a client-centered, educative approach to adoption, based on the concept that adoption should be a growth-oriented, healthy, fun, and creative process. It assumes a solid marriage and/or good personal adjustment, a readiness to parent, and adequate resources and love to meet the needs of a specific child or children. The primary objective of the Adoption Counselor is to help clients develop an adoption plan which is a mutually agreed upon, realistic description of their personalities, resources and hopes in adoption. Crossroads has no specific requirements such as religion, marital status, length of marriage, number of children, age, or physical status. Adoption planning focuses on the future rather than the past. Our goal is planning with clients, rather than making decisions for them. The role of the Adoption Counselor is to support clients, raise appropriate questions for them to consider, share information and perceptions, to serve as custodian of data supplied by the client, and to complete the writing of the adoption plan--all in an atmosphere of openness and equality.

Crossroads works with families in completing an adoption plan, seeking and identifying a child, placement of the child, providing assistance and support in the adjustment process, and assisting with legal finalization of the adoption. In addition to contact with their Adoption Counselor, families are encouraged to make use of Crossroads educational opportunities. Families will be linked with support groups and may request to be linked with a support family.

The Board and staff at Crossroads believe wholeheartedly that adoption is a valid method of family building. Crossroads continues to work with each parent and child as an individual with unique potential and needs and to accord each of them dignified caring assistance.
