Every day at Children’s Bureau we strive to create a world where all children grow up with endless possibilities and potential. We help strengthen families with young children and the communities in which they live by focusing our efforts on four interlocking goals: nurturing parenting, school readiness, good health and economic stability.
Children’s Bureau has expertise in areas such as school readiness, parenting, family resource centers, support groups, mental health counseling, foster care, adoption and more. Additionally, Children’s Bureau conducts research and advocates for investment in the early years.

Misty's Adoption Journey
Misty loves being a mommy to Aaron and Orin*. She marvels in the little moments and celebrates the big ones like the recent finalization of Orin’s adoption on August 26, 2013. This single parent, who works full time as a biologist, says that being an adoptive parent is a different kind of motherhood because it happened on her own terms. We asked Misty to tell us more about her experience as an adoptive parent with Children’s Bureau and her life with Aaron and Orin. [More]
