BRINGING TOGETHER FOREVER FAMILIES
Children who need families are at the heart of the Inspiritus Adoption program, which seeks to place children of all ages with forever families that can provide loving, secure homes. Inspiritus is a licensed "Child Placing Agency" with the Georgia Department of Human Services Office of Residential Child Care, a license Inspiritus has held continuously since 1982. We place a special emphasis on placing children who have experienced significant difficulties and traumatic circumstances.
Inspiritus works with all families and individuals who are willing and committed to becoming adoptive parents. Prospective parents must be at least 25 years of age and at least 10 years older than the child(ren) placed.
ADOPTION FROM FOSTER CARE / HERITAGE ADOPTION
We provide permanent families for waiting children in Georgia's foster care system. LSG offers prospective adoptive parents the opportunity to adopt children at very little cost thanks to a cooperative contact with the Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS), State Adoption Unit. Ongoing support is available to families throughout the process and after adoption.
Heritage Adoption is a Public / Private Partnership to Place:
A child who has been out of the custody of legal or biological parent for more than 24 consecutive months
Siblings who need to be placed for adoption together
Children who have been diagnosed with physical, emotional, or behavioral disabilities
Inspiritus offers support throughout the adoption process, including parent training (IMPACT), home study or family assessment, placement services, family consultations, and more.
WENDY'S WONDERFUL KIDS
Since 2010, Inspiritus has been implementing Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption that is bringing children waiting to be adopted from foster care one step closer to safe, loving and permanent homes.
Through Wendy’s Wonderful Kids, the Foundation provides grants to adoption agencies to hire and train adoption recruiters who implement the Foundation’s evidence-based Child-Focused Recruitment Model. This model is up to three times more effective at serving children who have been in foster care the longest, including older youth, sibling groups and children with special needs.
Inspiritus currently has insert three Wendy’s Wonderful Kids recruiters who serve the Metro Atlanta and Coastal regions. Our recruiters work with smaller caseloads, ensuring that they can provide these children with the attention, resources and support they need and find the adoptive families they deserve. The Dave Thomas Foundation believes every child deserves a home and that every child is adoptable.
