D.A. Blodgett-St. John’s provides the following Adoption Services:
Special Needs Adoption Program/Older Child Adoption-
Children in this program are in Michigan’s foster care system due to abuse and/or neglect. After a period of time in foster care with the goal of reunification with their parents, the children’s parents’ rights have been terminated and they are now available for adoption. Our primary need is for families who are able to care for older children (8 and up), large sibling groups (3 or more where at least one child is over 8), or medically fragile children.
