Our colleagues at Stepping Stones (formerly MAPS/Maine Adoption Placement Services, Inc.) recently closed their agency after 37 years of tremendous service to children and families. We are saddened by this closing and, at the same time, honored to have been asked to carry on their excellent work of responding to expectant parents, birth parents, prospective adoptive families and children. We have welcomed Stepping Stones clinical staff to work with us as we have long valued our colleagues and their wonderful service to families and, in this way, hope to provide as much continuity as possible. Please feel free to request an initial meeting with the agency to discuss your adoption needs. We will be honored to discuss and provide services that might be appropriate to your needs.

Prospective adoptive families in our program complete an extensive ‘home study’ process in which they participate in interviews with a trained home study social worker; they also undergo background checks and other verifications of suitability for adoptive parenthood. Our families participate in adoption education as well so that they can help a child grow up with full knowledge of their adoption, with a clear sense of the caring and love of their birth family and with confidence and self-esteem.
