Mission Statement

Mission Statement picture

Madison Adoption Associates is a Hague accredited, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  Our mission is to bring hope, love, and connection by serving children, individuals, and families in the areas of adoption, foster care, and support services.

Our work is guided by the following core principles:

  • Securing stable and loving permanent families for children through pre-adoption preparation, education, guidance, support, and post adoption services.
  • Conducting our business activities with our heart first and an unwavering commitment to ethics.
  • Treating each individual with dignity and walking with them throughout their personal journey.
  • Always acting in the best interests of each child.
  • Ensuring that each adoption process is transparent, with adherence to all laws and regulations.
  • Providing expectant and birth parents with confidential, compassionate, and non-judgmental support.
  • Recognizing the unique and precious potential of each person and each family.
  • Building healthy and thriving families and communities by providing educational services and therapeutic supports rooted in attachment and relational connections.
  • Committing time and resources to charitable activities that assist children who are not eligible for adoption and children in foster care to lead stronger, safer, healthier, and more productive lives.

Our placement goals are to meet the child’s needs and best interests, along with a strong commitment to work with the wishes and rights of the prospective adoptive families. MAA works to maintain standards and policies that are consistent with applicable child welfare policy and law, including, without limitation, The Convention on Protection of Children and Cooperation in respect of Intercountry Adoption (“Hague Convention”), the Intercountry Adoption Act of 2000 (“IAA”), and the implementing regulations set forth in 22 CFR Part 96-98 (“Hague Regulations”). Specifically, Madison Adoption Associates shall abide by the principles of (a) ensuring that intercountry adoptions take place in the best interests of children; and (b) preventing the abduction, sale or trafficking of children in connection with intercountry adoption.
