SOMETIMES GREAT FAMILIES ARE BUILT NOT BORN
Why Choose Adoption Avenues
30+ Years Experience
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 people making the loving parenting decision to place their child for adoption to the new caring 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.

Agency Infant Program
Agency adoption is when someone is picked by prospective birth parents who are refered to Adoption Avenue, Inc. in order to make an adoption plan.
Independent adoption (or private adoption as it is sometimes called) is when prospective adoptive parents and birth parents find one another outside of an agency.
Since Wisconsin is an “agency state,” families interested in Step Parent Adoptions are required to hire an agency to provide them with a Step Parent Screen.
What our clients say
I can’t imagine a better experience than working with Cindy! She was incredibly thorough and detailed in her explanations of every step of the process. She was INCREDIBLY responsive and even helped us with things that were technically not in her job description. We ended up leaning on her more than any other person in our adoption journey. She was also extremely thoughtful and kind to the birth mother, which is the most important thing in my opinion. We are so happy with our new baby boy and cannot thank her enough for helping us through this process.
Adoption Ave & Cindy are wonderful. As a biological mother, my pregnancy and adoption were a happy experience.
A picture of Cindy can go in the dictionary to define “bubbly”. She is also organized and fiercely protective of birth mothers. I’ve been in contact with many families and adoption agencies before finding Cindy… the difference is day and night. She spoke to me with respect and kindness, she is passionate for her work and has decades of experience. Both myself and the biological father felt comfortable and welcome from the first time we met her.
I knew that I could contact her at any time for questions or support and sometimes did. Even after the adoption, she was receptive to me reaching out, even about unrelated topics & I believe that Cindy and I will have an ongoing connection.The adoptive parents also loved her! She took charge of the “behind the scenes” stuff and that went so smoothly – I didn’t have to lift a finger even once to get support and legal requirements arranged. Thanks to her experience, she set us up with a strong legal team and the parents were able to leave Wisconsin with the baby in less than a week! We expected to be stuck for much longer.
Cindy and the adoptive parents are among the most amazing people I’ve met in the past years. I highly recommend them & I am so glad that I didn’t settle for anyone else.
The adoption process can be an emotional rollercoaster. Adoption Avenues is the best resource to help you navigate the journey from beginning through post placement. We truly appreciated Cindy’s vast knowledge of the entire process. Their team helped us through unexpected changes with speed and efficiency, especially with interstate agencies.
We wholeheartedly recommend Adoption Avenues.
