Getting Started with Adoption

Adoption is a life-long process that unites a child who is emotionally and legally ready with a new parent or parents who open their heart and home permanently to that child.

Like those in Foster Care, children in need of adoption and a permanent family home come from a variety of age groups and backgrounds. Some may have physical, emotional and cognitive challenges. But all of them have one thing in common: the need for a stable family home where they can be safe, loved and nurtured into successful adults.

CFS of Western Manitoba offers a full range of adoption services for Westman residents including (but not limited to) private, intercountry, de facto, extended family and adoption by a spouse or common-law partner. Ongoing family counselling, support and post-adoption services are also available.

The Post-Adoption Registry provides non-identifying information, search and reunion services to eligible family members who were involved in an adoption that was granted in Manitoba.
