Welcome to Adoption Avenues, Inc.

Adoption Avenues, Inc. strives to provide environments of love and stability for children in need. Education and support is offered for everyone in the adoption process, from the person giving up parental rights to the new loving family. We are a Wisconsin licensed child placing agency offering a full range of adoption services. Our social workers have years of experience. Adoption can be difficult and confusing. We are here to help navigate the process for birth parents who are placing a child for adoption and for adoptive parents trying to choose the best avenue for building a family.

The services we offer include birth parent counseling for women experiencing unplanned or crisis pregnancies, home studies for all types of adoption, step-parent screenings, pre-adoptive preparation, foster home licensing and post-placement supervision services. Wisconsin is an "agency" state, thus a private adoption agency must be involved in every adoption. Our fees are competitive and reasonable.

IMPORTANT! TAX CREDIT IN DANGER! - Tuesday, May 23, 2017

 Attention Adoptive Families: The time to act is NOW!  We need your help!

The Adoption Tax Credit (ATC) is vulnerable and may be eliminated as part of tax reform – and we need your help to save it. Join us as we work to keep pressure on Congress to save the credit that makes it possible for all families to adopt.

The American Academy of Adoption Attorneys are holding two fly-ins in the next two weeks to talk to Members of Congress in person about the tax credit. Help by sharing your story and create a surround sound of voices defending the credit.

Let your legislators know what the Adoption Tax Credit has meant for your family. Every voice matters – legislators will only #SaveTheATC if they understand the real-world impact and feel that their constituents support it.

Here are 8 easy steps to provide their story directly with their Members of Congress:

1.     Click here. Using your phone or computer with a camera:

2.     Click Send Video. A new window will pop up - click Make a Video.

3.     The camera will turn on, and you're ready to record! Click the red button to start recording.

7.     Enter your info or log in with Facebook – it will ask you if your zip code is correct. Click confirm to send the message to your Members of Congress!
