Since 1894, The Children’s Home Society of New Jersey is committed to placing all infants and toddlers, of all races, whose birth parents come to us seeking placement. In domestic adoption we work only with families who live in New Jersey or Bucks County, Pennsylvania. We provide the home study and facilitate the adoption from beginning to end.
Levels of openness in adoptions vary on a case by case basis according to the wishes of all parties involved. In many open adoptions the birth parents participate in the selection of the adoptive parents from the agency’s approved families. Some parents choose to meet face to face without exchanging last names. Before a child’s placement, the degree of future contact is discussed and agreed upon. Contact may include photographs, and/or annual in-person contact. Typically, the agency facilitates sharing of progress reports.
We accept singles, couples and those families with multiple children for our “hard to place” children. A subsidy may accompany a “hard to place” child or sibling group. The average wait for a placement after approval ranges from one month to three years depending on a variety of factors. Fees are moderate and based on a sliding scale depending on income. For more information, please contact Marie Braun at (800) 247-6365, Ext. 115 or .
Please note that adoption services are available to residents of New Jersey, Bucks County, PA and the area of Montgomery County, PA that borders eastern Bucks County ONLY.
