Independent Adoption Center (IAC), the nation’s leading open adoption agency, has opened the doors at its newest office in Tampa, Florida. Adoptive parents and birthparents in Florida will now have access to the full range of trusted IAC adoption services.
The new office is located at 3030 N Rocky Point Drive W, Suite 150, right off the Courtney Campbell Causeway on the west side of town. Adoption Workshops will be held on a monthly basis, the first one was held on November 12, 2013. There are currently six adoptive families already signed up with IAC’s Florida branch, and over 130 pregnant women in Florida have contacted IAC this year to receive pregnancy counseling or adoption information.
“We look forward to providing open adoption services as well as LGBT-friendly services to birth and adoptive families in Florida,” said Ann Wrixon, IAC’s Executive Director.
IAC’s mission is to provide open adoption placement and counseling to birth and adoptive families to ensure that every child grows up feeling loved and supported. Having a presence in Florida, the fourth most populous state in the country, will contribute to achieving this mission. With the addition of this new office, IAC now provides complete in-state adoption services to over 40% of the US population.
“Our Florida office offers another option to families who might have been excluded from working with other agencies,” said Michelle Keyes, LMSW, IAC’s Florida Branch Director. “We are looking forward to building partnerships with entities in Florida and providing quality services to all members of the adoption triad.”
