Adoption by Gentle Care was founded on the belief that a child is a special gift who deserves the best opportunities in life. We believe it is truly a selfless act of love to consider adoption when parenting is not an option.
We attempt to cover every aspect of an adoption so that the adoptive process meets the needs of everyone involved, especially those of the child. We provide professional services to ensure a successful adoption.
2014 was an amazing year at AGC! We had several terrific moments throughout the year, with our 2000th adoption being the most remarkable! It is always an honor to share in the journeys of those we connect with. We fully recognize that the continued trust you place in us is the foundation of our success. Because of that, we work tirelessly toward ensuring that we meet and exceed your expectations in a fair and responsible way. We are looking forward to a promising 2015 and celebrating our 30th anniversary.
Ohio's New Adoption Records Law
Senate Bill 23 modified the law governing records of adoptions that were finalized between January 1, 1964, and September 18, 1996. The bill was signed into law on December 19, 2013. This law will allow those whose adoptions were finalized between January 1, 1964 to September 19, 1996 to gain access to their adoption file and original Birth Record from the Ohio Department of Health. The law has a one-year waiting period before any records will be released. The first day adoptees and their lineal descendants may request the adoption file is March 20, 2015. Should you have a questions, please call the Office of Vital Statistics at (614) 466-2531.
