Welcome to Adoption by Gentle Care
Serving as a partner in creating and sustaining nurturing families.
Adoption by Gentle Care is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio. We have proudly served the entire Buckeye State in providing services to expectant parents considering adoption and adoptive parents since 1985. From the Cleveland and Akron area in northern Ohio to the Cincinnati and Dayton regions in the southern part of the state, our Adoption Assessors 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.
Our highly skilled Assessors cover every aspect of the 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.
WHY CHOOSE US?
Are You Pregnant?
If you are pregnant and thinking about adoption, you came to the right place – we are here to help you in any way we can.
Looking to Adopt?
In almost every way, adopting a baby is the same as having a baby biologically. You will love your baby every bit as much, you will raise your baby in exactly the same ways.
Search & Reunion
Those who were separated by adoption may decide to search for each other at some point during their lives. We provide resources for Search and Reunion, as well as the State of Ohio laws and information regarding records.
Ohio’s 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. As of March 20, 2015, Adoptees and their lineal descendants may request the adoption file. If you have questions, call the Office of Vital Statistics at (614) 466-2531.
