UMFS has the expertise to SEE beyond the trouble to the CHAMPION within.
Adoption is a lifelong experience that can bring joys and also frustrations. Children adopted from the foster care system – as well as many children adopted privately or internationally – face a daunting variety of special emotional needs. For parents who struggle with the unique challenges of being adoptive parents, UMFS is here to help.
