Our Approach

Our Approach

First, we listen.

Whether adopting, fostering, or placing a child, Common Sense listens first and then helps you explore the possibilities, hopes, fears, and potential challenges of this important decision. We provide straightforward and candid insight on how the process works and how it might impact you and your family. Because we are a small agency with a big heart, we take the time to really get to know you by asking questions and genuinely listening to your answers.

Your situation is unique, and so is our approach.

We are often told that people feel like they are our only client. That’s how we’ll make  you feel, too. We care about each person in the family and want to help you through this important phase of your life.

We don’t offer cookie cutter solutions because we know there are many intricacies to each situation. There are various possibilities of how to adopt or foster a child. We can explain the costs, risks, and rewards of each to you and help you decide which option is best for your family.

We will then work one-on-one with you to complete the process and ensure your individual goals are met. Then, we’ll celebrate with you as you make your family just what you want it to be!
