From your first phone call to Adoption Support Center, you should feel our difference. But there is more to our agency than just optimism! Our services make the possibility of adoption available to every interested couple.
We offer two plans: Program 1 - Caucasian (and Caucasian blend) infants, and Program 2 - full or biracial African American adoptions. We also provide interstate sponsorships, and à la carte home studies for domestic and international adoptions. We invite you to attend one of our Wednesday Information Seminars to discover which adoption plan or service suits you best!
Program 1: Children who are Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, Native American
and blends of those races
An option for the couple that wants the comfort, support and insulation of an agency adoption.
  • We connect you and your birth mother via newspaper ads, yellow page ads, outreach programs, internet, referrals, marketing, networking, and as a Featured Family on our web site.
  • You do not need your own 800 line - we answer the calls generated from your activity 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
  • Most adoptive couples and birth moms are from Indiana.
  • The average placement time for child-free couples under the age of 40 (one or both of you) for an infant is 9-10 months - our goal is a one-year placement.
  • Children placed are usually healthy, Caucasian infants placed from the hospital. Seldom is foster care needed.
  • This plan is well suited for couples from 25-40 years of age. Couples over 40 may take a little longer.
  • Your birth mother is offered 24-hour adoption coordination and support before, during, and after placement.
  • You and your birth mother will probably meet during her pregnancy in a non-identifying way and share pictures and letters with her after placement using our agency as a liaison. Some birth moms ask for annual visits and some request an open adoption.
  • Birth mother living and medical expenses are arranged through the agency. Costs range from $9,000-20,000 after the Federal Tax Credit of $13,190.
  • Home studies are affordable, quick and non-judgmental.

International Home Studies - Quick, affordable and non-judgmental. If you would like to consider foreign adoption but don't know where to start, we can advise you regarding reputable agencies representing a wide range of countries.
À la Carte Home Studies - If you already have a pending private adoption, you may only need a home study. We are accustomed to providing quick and affordable home studies that meet your adoption resource's requirements. We can even provide a “rush” home study for an additional $500 fee if your birth mother is due soon.
Kinship Home Studies - These hold a special place in our heart as Julie adopted her grandson. We offer these home studies at a reduced fee.
Out-of-State Couples - If you live outside the state of Indiana, you need to know a former ASC couple as a referral. You will need to procure a home study in your state of residence.
Re-Applying Couples - If you are re-applying with ASC, (and 85% of our couples do!) welcome back!
Peer Support for Adoptive Parents - We are the only agency to provide peer support for our adoptive couples and birth moms. Check out the Miracles Support Group website to speak to our past adoptive families, read their stories, sign up for support and play groups, and find important links. When you activate with us, you are matched with your own peer family for support in addition to our agency.
Federal Tax Credit - The Federal Tax Credit has been signed and made permanent in 2013. The amount is $13,190 for families with a combined gross income of up to $197,880. Between $197,880 and $237,880 it slowly depletes itself until those who reach $237,880 will no longer qualify. We also offer information regarding adoption loans with banks, low-interest loans and grants and a Visa-based loan program with affordable, monthly payments. Check our Financing page for details.
So, where do you start? Just download and complete our Adoption Intake Form (PDF) and mail or fax it to our office. We will review it and invite you to one of our monthly Information Seminars. The session lasts over 3 hours on a Wednesday morning. Julie and Amanda cover both ASC Programs, describing what you and your birth mother might experience at our Center. You will leave knowing wait times, costs, risk factors, health information for the birth mother and baby, home study expectations and more. We know all the concerns you have and we cover them in great detail.
We know there are many, many questions you need to ask. Hopefully, our Frequently Asked Questions page addresses many of them. It is important that you feel a sense of trust and comfort with an adoption agency. You may never have such an important relationship with a resource again. Already, we hope you feel that our service, paperwork, and enthusiasm are superior to other resources you have contacted. We want you to see adoption as the exciting adventure that it is. We want to fill you with optimism! Send us your Adoption Intake Form (PDF) and start your journey.
You could be parents in less than a year!
