Adoption Services are based on a tradition of concern for children. Professional and dedicated service has resulted in building families, one child at a time. LSS offers services for:
- families looking to adopt a child through domestic or international adoption
- birth families facing difficult decisions regarding an unintended pregnancy
- individuals who have been adopted and are searching for information about their birth families.
LSS is licensed by the State of South Dakota as a child placement agency and accredited by the Council on Accreditation. LSS social workers are licensed by the South Dakota Board of Social Work Examiners.
LSS complies with all state and federal non-discrimination laws. The passage of SDCL 26-6-38 and 26-6-50 has not had any effect on the practice of adoption or foster care services at LSS.
