Adoptive Parents


A Note to Families Considering Adoption:

 The decision to adopt a child is a very personal one. If you have concluded that adoption is the right path for your family, the next important step is choosing an adoption agency to complete your homestudy and assist you in adoptive placement. 

We believe our agency is unique in terms of the personalized service we provide to adoptive parents. When working with our agency you will always have immediate telephone access to the Director, Sheryl Linne. Adoptive placement opportunties and issues do not limit themselves to the business day, nor can they wait until Monday morning. Sheryl and the adoption assessors featured on our Staff page are available when you need us. This is reflected in the testimonials set forth on this site and you are welcome to speak with our adoptive parent mentors for further confirmation if you are seriously considering our agency.

We invite you to apply to our agency by contacting us through email or telephone call. Either way, we will have an information packet in your hand within two business days and we can begin your adoption journey together. We look forward to hearing from you!

Adoptive Parent References and Mentors

Our agency builds close, trusting relationships with our adoptive families. This is reflected in our adoptive parent education and support group, Adoption Together. Many of our experienced adoptive families have volunteered to provide a brief telephone reference regarding our agency to prospective adoptive families considering our agency. In addition, some of our families have taken a further step and offered to act as mentors to provide support during the often challenging time period between being matched with a birth mother and taking your baby home. Please keep these important support services in mind and, if such information and/or support would be helpful, please do not hesitate to ask!

Adoption Professionals provides adoption services throughout southeastern Ohio. We regularly complete home studies and place babies with adoptive parents living in Dayton, Springfield and Cincinnati. We even place babies in Covington, KY and Lawrenceburg, IN. To learn more about our adoptive parents visit our Waiting Families page.

Adoptive Parent Testimonials

Amy & Scott

Throughout our adoption process, which has had its challenges, Sheryl and her staff have been phenomenal advocates for us and our daughter. Her passion, dedication and commitment to adoption could not possibly be matched. Our daughter will always know Sheryl as her guardian angel.

Jim & Julie

Throughout our adoption journey we have explored many agencies ourselves and walked alongside friends who have adopted children through a variety of avenues. We have been consistently thankful for Sheryl and our two amazing adoption experiences with Adoption Professionals.  Rather than muddling through confusing paperwork, coming up against various forms of "red tape", and being directed and redirected to faceless individuals over the phone, we have experienced the supportive simplicity of dealing personally with the agency director from our first (nerve-wracking!) phone call through our first (nerve-wracking!) steps out of the hospital as new parents and the subsequent (proud!) sharing of family stories and photos.

Not only have we felt advocated for and supported in the building of our family, we are confident that Adoption Professionals cares deeply for the emotional, psychological, and physical needs of birth parents, throughout pregnancy and beyond. Adoption Professionals is committed to an honest, holistic approach to building families through adoption; we cannot imagine our lives without the amazing children we have been blessed with the opportunity to parent.
