Since our beginning in the early 1990s, International Family Services (IFS) has helped nearly 4500 orphaned children find forever homes. IFS is a respected leader in the world of domestic and international adoption and we understand the unique needs of the orphan child, their cry for a chance in life where they can know peace, security and love free from injustice and oppression. IFS is a licensed child-placing agency in Texas, Oregon, Arizona, Arkansas, and Pennsylvania, registered in Illinois. IFS also has staff offices in Missouri, Tennessee, New York and California. In coordination with licensed child-placing agencies, we can also place children into families residing in all 50 States and US citizens living abroad. We are committed to bridging the gap between the orphan child in need of a mother and father, and prospective parents who can provide a home where children can live a life that includes family.

Bob and Carol Mardock

The Mardock’s adoption and foster parenting saga began when they were kids. Carol came from a proud Irish immigrant family that experienced family challenges along the way. At the age of six months she was sent to live with her aunt and uncle, who became Mom and Dad.

As a grade schooler, Carol shared a common back-yard fence with Luanie, one of the first Korean-American adopted children to come to the U.S. in the 1950s. Together these two girls shared their appreciation for the opportunities provided by their non-biological parents. Carol grew up thinking that some day when she was married she would like to adopt and she wanted to adopt from Korea.
