Who We Are

Lutheran Adoption Service is a jointly owned subsidiary corporation of Samaritas (formerly Lutheran Social Services of Michigan) and Wellspring Lutheran Services (formerly Lutheran Child and Family Services of Michigan). Both agencies handled adoptions individually in Michigan for many years. In 1977, the agencies agreed to join forces in order to provide more loving, forever homes for children in foster care who needed permanent placement. Since its partnership inception, LAS has found homes for thousands of Michigan foster care youth.

Lutheran Adoption Service specializes in the placement of children from the State’s foster care system. Many children in foster care need permanent adoptive homes. There is little or no cost involved in adopting a child from the foster care system.

there are 8 offices
around the state that handle adoptions
