Lutheran Services Carolinas hosts regular informational meetings for families interested in exploring private domestic adoption in North Carolina. These meetings provide prospective adoptive families with a relaxed, “no strings attached” opportunity to learn more about the process of adoption, how adoption impacts the family, and more specifically about the services we provide at LSC.

Please note there is limited seating for these meetings and we ask that interested families make a reservation prior to attending an informational meeting. We suggest all prospective caregivers attend the meeting and encourage you to make alternative childcare arrangements when attending the meeting.

Our information meetings take place throughout the greater Charlotte area. Please contact us for specific meeting locations. Our upcoming meetings are scheduled every other month from 1 p.m.-4 p.m. and are as follows: 


Saturday, May 9, 2020

Saturday, July 11, 2020

Saturday, September 12, 2020

Saturday, November 14, 2020

Adoptive families are welcome to submit an application and application fee at the interest meeting or any time after. 

Please contact Lauren Perkins, Director of Private Adoptions, by phone at (704) 412-1785 or email at to register for an information meeting or with any additional questions.
