Who We Are

LDS Family Services is operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. As such, we follow Church welfare principles and seek to support Latter-day Saint families as they work to achieve their adoption goals.

Current Services Offered by LDS Family Services

We provide services to single expectant parents and prospective adoptive families. While we no longer function as a full-service adoption agency, we do continue to offer many other services, including consultation for adoptive couples, screening and registration on an adoption matching website, and counseling for single expectant parents.

Community Services

Adoptive couples may seek the following services from community resources:

  • Pre-adoption education
  • Adoption home study
  • Placement services
  • Post-placement services

LDS Family Services can consult with you to find the best community services for your needs.

Eligibility Criteria 

In order to include your profile on adoption.com/lds as a prospective adoptive couple, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Have an endorsement from your bishop or branch president.
  • Be sealed in the temple.
  • Maintain current temple recommends.
  • Have a current adoption home study.

Once you meet the screening criteria, you will be able to publish your profile on adoption.com/lds at no cost. This will allow you additional exposure, both to single expectant parents who are considering adoption as well as to community adoption providers.
