Interested in Adoption?
Certified Adoption Agencies
See a list of certified Wyoming adoption agencies licensed to practice in Wyoming here.
Wyoming does not have many children in the foster care system who are free for adoption. Children typically return home or find permanency with relatives. Sometimes foster parents adopt a child from the Wyoming foster care system. Children who become free for adoption are often times referred to Wyoming certified adoption agencies.

Adoption Confidential Intermediaries (CI) work for adoptees and their biological families in hopes of reconnecting the family members or collecting important medical histories. CIs, as these trained volunteers are called, are given special access to court records concerning the adoption.

These forms will be useful in accessing adoption records:
- Adoptee’s Affidavit and Petition
- Adoptee’s Sibling Affidavit and Petition

Wyoming Putative Father Registry
The purpose of the Putative Father Registry is to protect the parental rights of fathers who affirmatively assume responsibility for children they may have fathered and to expedite permanent placements for children. Get a Wyoming Putative Father Brochure and Registry form.
Attorneys often require the Report of Medical Examination SS-45 for adoption work.
