After four years in the adoption field, Steffany Aye found herself choosing to leave her place of employment as the Child Placement Supervisor for a local adoption agency in order to finish her second master’s degree. As Steffany was finishing her master’s of Social Work degree requirements, she began exploring the idea of starting an adoption agency as she saw a need for good, ethical and affordable adoption services, and Adoption & Beyond became a reality in the Summer of 1998. Though the agency originated from a, one-person, home-based office, it eventually outgrew the house and was relocated to Overland Park, Kansas. Adoption & Beyond is a non-profit child placing agency licensed in the states of Kansas and Missouri. It has a board of directors who oversees the operation of the agency, and it is run on a daily basis by its Founder and Executive Director, Steffany Aye, along with the assistance of a wonderful team of adoption professionals.

They believe every child should grow up feeling loved, and they’re on a mission to build healthy families through child-centered adoptions. For more than 23 years, they’ve been listening first, responding with empathy, and helping families navigate the life-changing process of adoption with confidence.

At Adoption & Beyond, they dedicate themselves to building meaningful relationships by educating, guiding, and advocating for all touched by adoption, every step of the adoption journey.  They support birth parents, adoptive families and their children.
