Welcome to the Children’s Bureau
Adoptive Support website


Just like parenting, adoption is a lifelong process. The Children’s Bureau provides family based services, support, and information for adoptive families, helping them access resources and connect with other families.

Consider joining our Facebook group, Indiana Adoption Support Group, an online support group for adoptive parents. This is a private, closed group where parents can share their stories, discuss concerns, and seek support from other adoptive parents.
