Tampa, FL (PRWEB) October 13, 2013
The Independent Adoption Center is excited to announce the opening of their 9th office in Tampa, Florida. This is an exciting venture for the IAC in its continued work to serve birth families and adoptive families with the best possible services.
The new office is located at 3030 N Rocky Point Drive W, in Suite 150, right off the Courtney Campbell Causeway on the west side of town. Adoption Workshops will be held on a monthly basis, the first one starting November 12th, 2013. There are currently six adoptive families already signed up with IAC's Florida branch, and over 130 pregnant women in Florida have contacted IAC this year to receive pregnancy counseling or adoption information.
“We look forward to providing open adoption services as well as LGBT-friendly services to birth and adoptive families in Florida," said Ann Wrixon, IAC's Executive Director.
IAC's mission is to provide open adoption placement and counseling to birth and adoptive families to ensure that every child grows up feeling loved and supported. Having a presence in Florida, the fourth most populous state in the country, will contribute to achieving this mission. With the new office, IAC can provide complete in-state adoption services to over 40% of the US population.
"Our Florida office will offer another option to families who might have been excluded from working with other adoption agencies," said Michelle Keyes, LMSW, IAC's Florida Branch Director. "We are looking forward to building partnerships with entities in Florida and providing quality services to all branches of the adoption triad."
