Detailed Information

The Michigan Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) is an inclusive, statewide information and referral service that assists ALL families interested in adopting children from foster care, and for adoption workers looking for homes for these children. The MARE website provides a listing of waiting children in Michigan and of Michigan families interested in adopting children with special needs. To view waiting children, please visit the photolisting page. We have supportive service programs for families that includes our adoption navigators and match support programs.

MARE is not a placement service — we do not provide care for waiting children and do not complete family homestudies or foster care licenses. Instead, MARE refers prospective parents to agencies and answers questions they might have about adoption and children with “special needs.” MARE also provides technical assistance to adoption workers and agencies.
