Heaven Sent Adoption Services, Inc started in 1999 out of a need that I saw in the adoption field. During the first 5 years (1999 – 2003) I built and operated a referral service for adoptive families. I maintained a central data base for homestudy approved waiting families and assisted them with locating adoption professionals that were working with Expectant mothers looking to make an adoption plan.
During those 5 years, I recognized and wanted to get involved in an area that expectant moms or parents seemed to have missing in their journey. Educating expectant parents should be a continual process during the time frame in which they are trying to choose what is best for their baby and themselves. Already working with the adoptive parent side of adoption through the referral program it only took becoming licensed through the State of Michigan as a child placing agency to help both Expectant and Adoptive parents. We were licensed in 2004 through 2018, as a non-profit 501©3 child placing agency.
In 2018 it was decided to restructure Heaven Sent again to meet the needs of the people we assist through adoption. The agency services part has merged with Forever Families – a licensed child placing agency in Livonia, Mi. So through that agency we will still provide all agency services ie: Homestudy, placement, post placement and finalization. The Referral Program is expanding to consulting services for attorneys as well as continuing education, counseling to Expectant mothers, networking and referrals.
Along with meeting the standards set by the state of Michigan, we believe that Heaven Sent Adoption Services was founded out of God’s will. As we work within the adoption field we seek to serve our Lord in all the work we do. As I searched for the right people to bring on board for this project of building an agency, I desired to have people who were personally touched by adoption as to better understand and connect with the people we would be assisting. Our mission and goals develop and thus we now have Heaven Sent Adoption Services, Inc.
