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.
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.
Adoption by Gentle Care is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. We proudly serve the entire Buckeye State in providing services to expectant parents considering adoption and adoptive parents. From the Cleveland and Akron area in northern Ohio to the Cincinnati and Dayton regions in the southern part of the state, our counselors will travel to your Ohio location to provide you with information about adoption while introducing you to our Adoption By Gentle Care team and processes.
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.
I picked this agency to place my son through because they require an amount of openness between the adoptive family and birth family. I found an amazing family and am still (2 years later) extremely pleased with my decision to place my son.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Adoption by Gentle Care. We felt taken care of every step of the way (and still do after our placement). They are caring, professional, informative, and go above and beyond to help you understand the process. We appreciate the courses that we were required to take - it really helped us think of questions that we hadn't thought of. We wouldn't change a thing from our experience!
My husband Ryan and I had a fantastic experience with Adoption by Gentle Care. So professional and nurturing throughout the entire process. We have our miracle angel and a healthy open relationship with her birth parents!
