PREGNANCY COUNSELLING AND ADOPTION

It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closure of the FSGV Adoption Agency. After more than two decades of providing adoption services and helping more than 700 children find their forever families, FSGV Adoption Agency will no longer provide adoption services as of November 1, 2018 due to the declining number of international adoptions.

It has been a great honour to have helped hundreds of hopeful adoptive parents realize their dream of starting or growing their family. However, with changes to international adoption policies fewer children are being placed for adoption

We would like to thank you for all of your support over the years. For those who have attended our agency events: picnics, bowling, pumpkin patch and 20th Anniversary/Santa visit; we have enjoyed your company and loved watching your children grow up. We take comfort in knowing the connections that we have made over the years will carry on and our families will continue to get together. We hope that you stay involved in the adoption community through the Adoptive Families Association of BC.

For our families who are completing post placement reports

We will complete Post Placement Reports until November 1, 2018. Your file will then be transferred to another agency or BC Ministry of Children and Family Development. We will inform you when your file is being transferred.

For our families or birth parents who have completed a domestic adoption with our agency.

We have kept a Post Adoption file at our agency in the event that either birth or adoptive parents contact the agency. We will now be transferring your file to the BC Ministry of Children and Family Development. The contact information is:

Post Adoption Openness Exchange Registry
PO Box 9705, STN PROV GOVT
Victoria, BC V8W 9S1
250-387-3660 ext 3

The Post Adoption Openness Exchange Registry will oversee your openness agreement.

We appreciate the support that you have given to our agency and we wish you all the best in the future.
