Adoption Services

So many children need a home for life. So many people want a child to love. Bringing the two together is a thing of pure joy! Harmony Family Center’s Adoption Specialists are here to help answer the many questions that you may have related to adoption. From beginning the adoption process to exploring the various types of adoptions and learning what to expect along the way, Harmony staff are available to answer all your questions and assist with each unique situation.

 

Founded in 1996 by Pamela Wolf, an adoptive mother, Harmony has a long-standing history and passion for helping prospective parents achieve their goal of growing their family through adoption. As Tennessee’s premier adoption agency, Harmony Family Center provides services for families interested in adopting a child as well as those who are looking to provide legal permanency for a child that is already in their home.

 

 

Families aren’t just case number or file at Harmony Family Center. Families deserve individual treatment when it comes to personal hopes and dreams. Harmony Family Center staff will provide families with the information and support needed to successfully complete an adoption. Please contact us at 865.982.5225 to schedule a consultation with an Adoption Specialist.

Resources for Expectant Parents

Any pregnancy, planned or unplanned, generates a great deal of emotions, concerns, and questions. Joy at one moment can be followed quickly by fear or uncertainty. This is completely normal and expected.  Each pregnancy story is unique and there are commonly asked questions shared by many. Harmony Family Center helps pregnant women understand the adoption process and will support what a birth mother believes is best for her.  Should a pregnant woman decide that adoption is right for her, Harmony Family Center staff will walk the journey with her from birth, to placement, to healing.  Harmony is a Knoxville based agency who works with local expectant mothers and birth parents.  We will be there with you through the entire process.  If a birth mother decides to parent her baby, Harmony Family Center staff will provide referrals for all the resources needed to be successful. Adoption Specialists are available to discuss your questions and concerns. Please call 865.982.5225 to begin the conversation.
