Creating Family Through Adoption

For more than 115 years, Lutheran Family Service has been a leader in Iowa adoptions, matching thousands of children with their forever families. We offer a Domestic Infant Adoption Program and services related to International Adoption and Embryo Adoption. We also provide services to birth families and adoptees previously matched through LFS who want to reunite. LFS adoption program is built on our belief that every human life—no matter how it was conceived—is precious in the eyes of God. Every child has the right to grow in families where their emotional, developmental, spiritual and physical needs will be adequately met. The process requires planning and preparation, but Lutheran Family Service will always be available to walk with you on that journey as you create a family through adoption. Lutheran Family Service will travel anywhere in the state of Iowa to provide adoption services. These services are not restricted to our physical locations.

Adoption is a unique, lifelong experience for adopting parents, adopted children and birth parents. It requires ongoing education, reflection and participation, and we’ll walk with you every step.

Lutheran Family Service provides adoption help to both adoptive parents and birth parents.
