Mi'kmaw Adoption

Children who speak Mi'kmaw must be placed in an environment where the language is spoken and/or understood. Culturally enriched activities must be supported for the overall well-being of the child.

The greatest need for families is for children ages eleven to sixteen. Many Mi'kmaw children who need supportive families have spent most of their lives in one community. These children require sensitivity and understanding during the adjustment period to a new home, a new school or new community environments.
