About Adoption Center of Illinois at Family Resource Center
At Adoption Center of Illinois at Family Resource Center, our mission is:
Helping Children through Adoption.
We do this by:
Finding permanent, loving adoptive families for children, regardless of the background or health of the child, safeguarding the best interests and welfare of children placed in our care and advancing the practice and understanding of adoption.
From the very beginning, we have been committed to an innovative and compassionate approach to adoption.
Our guiding principles include the following:
*The people we work with have the right to question absolutely everything and every question deserves an answer.
*We believe that the people we work with are best able to manage their own lives. *They do not come to us with the expectation that we will tell them what to think or how to feel.
*We do not advocate for one group over another (birth parents vs. adoptive parents) because our primary concern is the safety and well being of children placed in our care. Our job is to find good homes for children.
*We do not mandate either open or closed adoptions but believe decisions about potential relationships between birth parents and adoptive ...parents should be made between the parties involved.
*We encourage adoptive parents, birth parents and adoptees to consider viewing themselves as part of one, large extended family network.
*The adoption process should be fully transparent and not driven by financial considerations and or motivated by financial gain.
*We want to generate income for the agency from good things. This is why it is our policy to return placement fees to adoptive parents if an adoption is overturned or disrupted by a legal challenge, thereby limiting the financial risks associated with the adoption of a child.
*We encourage our constituents to look at adoption and how it affects them – and to form their own opinions about adoption and its place in their lives.
*We believe that civil and respectful discourse, free from antagonism, is possible and essential.
*We are committed to continually exploring and re-examining how we put our mission into action. We welcome open discussion of our methods and strategies.
*We believe in respecting the rights and prerogatives of others – and that everyone is entitled to their own point of view. Even when we disagree we can still listen to and consider the ideas of others.
*We support and encourage an ongoing process of professional development and increasing the knowledge, understanding and effectiveness of our staff and our volunteer board of directors.
