|Children of all ages need permanent, stable, loving families. Kittson County Social Services ensures that Minnesota children placed for adoption within the state or across state or international lines benefit from all legal protections and that they and their families receive support and social services to meet their individual needs.
|Adoption creates a legal parent/child relationship for:
|• Children whose birth parents make an adoptive plan
|• Children adopted from outside the United States
• Children adopted from outside the United States
|• Children adopted by stepparents
|• Children who come under guardianship of the state.
