If you adopt a child, you change that child’s life forever. Your life will change beautifully in the process! The founders and staff at Building Arizona Families can personally attest to just how transformational adoption is. One of the co-founders of Building Arizona Families, Kelly Rourke-Scarry, was adopted at birth. Angie Penrose, the other co-founder of the agency, adopted three children internationally. Many of the staff have adopted children as well.
We are passionate about both the miracle and the necessity of adopting children. We are based in Arizona, and work with Arizona families to adopt foster children around the United States. Building Arizona Families supports families around the U.S. who want to adopt newborn babies. We also are internationally accredited and our able to work with families around the U.S. to complete international adoptions from Haiti.
Before you adopt a child, we recommend you do your homework regarding adoption agencies. Building Arizona Families is licensed, BBB A+ rated, and internationally accredited. International accreditation is a highly rigorous process. When adoption agencies receive this level of accreditation, it illustrates their commitment to excellence in the process and integrity in working in the best interest of the child being adopted.
