Adoption is a legal process that permanently transfers parental rights from birth parents to adoptive parents. It means taking a child into your home as a permanent family member. It means caring for and guiding children through their growing years and giving them the love and understanding they need to develop to their full potential. Social workers counsel birth parents that are voluntarily considering adoption for their born or unborn child, make referrals to assist them in their decision, and provide relinquishment services. Social workers also evaluate adoptive homes for placing children, some of who are dependents of the Juvenile Court and are unable to be returned to their biological parents. Many of the children have special needs, may be older or part of a sibling group.

Located near Qualcomm Stadium, our San Diego office is home not only to our Foster Family & Adoptions direct service staff, but it serves as our Corporate Office as well. Come visit “Walden’s Wall of Heroes” in our lobby and see the tiles honoring those who have supported our foster youth. The San Diego location also houses two quilts made by a retired employee where each square was designed by a member of Walden’s staff or by one of our foster parents or children. Our Walden Family Tree showcases photos of finalized adoptions and our new Forever Families. The beautiful weather in San Diego allows us to participate in many outdoor community activities throughout the year. We love Community Outreach! This year, Walden has participated in Chula Vista’s Day of the Child, YMCA Health Kids Day, Dia de San Ysidro, The Rock & Roll Marathon and San Diego’s LGBT Pride Festival to name a few. We also planned a fun-filled beach day for our Foster Youth – it was the first time at the beach for some of our kids! San Diego is also proud to offer many unique training opportunities to our certified foster & adoptive parents. In 2013, a former foster youth who is now an accomplished author came to speak to our foster parents and youth about his journey, a certified Drug & Alcohol counselor provided training on Substance Abuse Awareness, and we hosted a three week money management series for our parents, youth and emancipated youth.
