Foundations for Growth is a licensed and counseling-based practice in Tampa, FL, that informs, supports, and guides birth and adoptive parent(s) through the process of creating healthy new families. Our counselors are master-level, licensed clinical social workers who have completed the adoption-competent professional training in the State of Florida. We believe all individuals and family types should be given the choice of adoption and access to comprehensive services to make an informed adoption plan or to create a family through adoption. We do not have any exclusionary policies for adoptive parents, including age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status, religion, ethnic background, color, or race.
Our comprehensive services provide free options counseling and support to birthmothers, home study services, adoption education webinars, linkages with adoption letter/profile specialists, match support services, post-placement supervision, and pre-and post-adoption counseling and support. We offer an online support, current adoption information, and helpful tips through our All About Adoption blog, Facebook group, and other social media sites. We are involved in adoption advocacy and provide in-person support groups and community events for the adoption triad.
