Adoption Services for "Minnesota Waiting Children"

Carlton County Public Health and Human Services provides adoption services through our Family Unit, which include referrals for home studies for families interested in adoption of older children with physical disabilities and/or emotional difficulties. Carlton County provides post-adoption services such as referrals for counseling and other services as well.

At any given time there are about 300 children in Minnesota waiting for adoptive parents. They are all children with special needs. Find more information on the Minnesota Adoption Resource Network at their website.

The Minnesota Department of Human Services also offers information on adoption, visit their website.
