Waiting Families

Are you considering adoption for your child?  St. John’s United Family Services has the experience, knowledge and compassion to walk beside you on this journey.  Your counselor will help to identify the qualities and values most important to you in an adoptive family.  We will assist you to explore open adoption and what this may mean for you and your child.

We will help you develop a plan that best meets your hopes and circumstance.  Each adoption is unique and based on what is in the best interest for the child, the birth parents and the adoptive parents.  As you think about making an adoption plan, know this about our waiting families:

  • All of our families have received an extensive home study and ongoing education about open adoption. 
  • All of our families are married & committed to each other and to raising your child in a two-parent household.
  • All of our families have shown that they are financially stable and able to provide a secure environment to raise your child.

Some of the families listed here may be a potential match for you.  When you meet with a counselor, we can provide additional information about these families or share profiles of other families.  Please note that some of these families may not be available when you contact us.


We have offices throughout Montana and are able to meet with you at a time and place that works best for you. Please contact us at 1-800-726-3083 or one of our offices to talk with one of our counselors.
