We are a nonprofit organization of families and individuals. We provide problem solving assistance and information about the unique challenges of adoption.
Whether you are an adoptive or prospective adoptive family, OURS can help educate and support you. The adopted child and family benefit from resources we can connect you with regarding adoption education, information and parenting . We are charter members of the national organization Adoptive Families of America.
We provide prospective adoptive families and individuals with information regarding the adoption process and sources of adoption support. We respond to questions from members and assist with referrals to appropriate resources. We work for correct representation of adoptive families, to promote and provide educational, cultural and special interest seminars and meetings for those interested in or involved in adoption.
We have available for reference a set of adoption exchange listings (for waiting children in Wisconsin and surrounding states), various newsletters from adoption organizations and a lending library of books on adoption.
Members of OURS receive a quarterly newsletter, which features a calendar of upcoming events, adoption news, adoption agency briefs, personal adoption stories, book reviews, special reports, and adoption arrivals within our membership.
