Adoption Supports

Therapeutic Services Agency has a 40-year history of helping families heal, grow, develop, and thrive! Providing services to families and children who are in the process of adoption, or have legal adoption finalized is an honor and an area of expertise developed at TSA. We recognize that often children who are experiencing the world of adoption have come to this because of childhood trauma or who have known fundamental grief and loss by being apart from birth parents. We respect the realities adoptive parents experience.  We work with adoptive families who care deeply for their children, have hopes, dreams and aspirations for their children, are committed to develop their family, and know the challenges within the journey of family relationships and family life.  We know the positive experience adoption can be and is!
