Hands Across The Water is a non-profit child placing agency, licensed in the state of Michigan. Our programs include infant domestic, waiting child domestic, international programs, and waiting child international.
A majority of our staff has been touched by adoption in some way and are passionate about building families by adoption. Our agency is located in Michigan where we can provide home study and placement services. We also have a Family Liasion located in the state of Georgia who will work with our Georgia families directly once the home study is complete. Hands Across The Water can also provide placement services to families living in all states and to US citizens residing abroad.
Hands Across The Water also provides adoptive parenting education through monthly classes on various topics, monthly support group for waiting families, monthly support group for families adopting (or have adopted) an older child, and a lending library for HATW families. Please contact our staff for information on these events and our various adoption programs.
