General Info
The California Department of Social Services' (CDSS) Adoptions Services Bureau (ASB) Facilitates Adoption of Children Who Need Permanent Homes by Providing Direct Agency and Independent Adoption Services Through Seven District Offices Located Throughout the State. All Seven Offices Provide Independent Services and Five of the Offices Also Provide Agency Services. Collectively, the Seven District Offices Operate the Third Largest Adoption Agency in California. The ASB Provides Agency Services for 28 Counties in California. The Services Focus Exclusively on the Placement of Court Dependent Children, the Majority of Whom Have Special Needs. In An "Agency Adoption" the Child is Placed for Adoption by the CDSS or a Licensed County or Private Adoption Agency. A Birth Parent's Parental Rights are Terminated Either by Court Action or Voluntarily Relinquishing Their Parental Rights. The Adoption Agency is Responsible for the Adoptive Planning of the Child Until the Completion of the Adoption. The ASB Also Provides Independent Services for 55 Counties. Independent or Private Adoptions are Private Transactions Initiated by the Parties of the Adoption. In An "Independent Adoption," It is the Birth Parent's Decision and Responsibility to Select the Adoptive Parent(s) and to Place the Child Directly with the Adoptive Family.

San Diego Social Services, especially Joanna Huntsberger, are horrible people. God forbid your social worker has a quota to meet in adoptions. You will lose your child especially when people like Joanna huntsberger lie to you and tell you that the adoptive parents will never take your child away. However, in the LIE of open adoption that Joanna huntsberger told, 13 years later I am still without my son. Women like her are promoted for meeting their adoptive quotas, instead of reprimanded for lying to birthmothers. This is not a justice system. This is a system for social workers are taught to take babies. AKA legalized kidnapping. And Joanna huntsberger is one of the worst most underhanded comma and disgusting social workers that ever lived on the face of this planet. I would avoid social services at all costs.

No address given to actually go apply to get services, obviously bogus information listed on yellow pages.
