Who We Are

Rooted in a legacy of faith and service, Legacy Adoption Services was formed over four decades ago, as a joint partnership of Samaritas and Wellspring Lutheran Services. LAS exists for the purpose of providing adoption services to children who cannot be raised by their birth parents. We strive to be responsive, creative and caring in our approach to enhancing stability in the lives of children and families we serve.

Featured Children

Roughly 2,500 children per year become available for adoption through the foster care system in Michigan. LAS aims to reduce that number by connecting families with children who deserve a forever loving home.
