Adoption & Beyond is committed to finding nurturing, permanent families for children by functioning as a licensed non-profit child placing agency. Adoption & Beyond is built upon a respect for life and family development. These principles are the foundation of our various adoption services.

TO PROVIDE education, support and quality services for people seeking to build their families through adoption and to assist in gathering and preparing the social background documents needed in the process. TO ASSIST women and men in looking at all life giving options for their child and by providing for their emotional needs as they prepare and participate in an adoption plan. TO SPONSOR workshops in order to educate the public regarding the positive aspects of adoption by presenting information on various adoption topics.

Adoption & Beyond, Inc. we established in 1998, so we have been around for many years serving families. We are a fully licensed non-profit child placement agency in the states of Kansas and Missouri. In addition, we have the prestigious accreditation of being Hague Accredited. This accreditation allows us to work with families wishing to pursue an international adoption and it confirms we provide ethical adoptions with the best interest of children at the heart of every service we provide.

We conduct a survey after the completion of each adoption service to determine the efficacy our adoption service provided. The number of birth parents reached, and the number of adoptive families and children severed each year, it is also an indicator of how we are meeting an unmet need in the community and around the world.

We became a fully licensed adoption agency in the states of Kansas and Missouri in 1998. We became Hague Accredited in 2012 and have successfully completed the 4 year re-accreditation process in 2016 and again in 2020. We have successfully worked with thousands of birth parents, adoptive families and their children. We have successfully networked with other ethical adoption providers and most recently developed our birth parent educational scholarship fund. Adoption & Beyond, Inc.'s commitment to ethical adoption practices and continued education and support of all individuals impacted by adoption is on going.
