More... Our Mission    

Our Mission:
Hands Across The Water is dedicated to building and supporting families, committed to the belief that every child deserves a home and loving family.

More... We believe    

 

We believe every child deserves a family. Children come first. Families need to be found for children....not children for families.

More... We have adoption programs    

We have adoption programs around the world and in the U.S. We are located in the state of Michigan, but can act as your placing agency, whatever state you live in.

More... Our Staff    

Our staff has been personally touched by adoption. We are here to help you navigate your own personal adoption journey to make your dreams come true.

More... We are LGBT Friendly!    

 

 

HATW follows a non-discrimination practice and does not establish our screening criteria based on race, creed, color, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression or natural origin.
