Who are we?
In 1999, Inna Pecar and her husband, Steve Pecar, followed their hearts and founded KidsFirst Adoption Services – an adoption agency that has been totally impassioned by, dedicated to, and supportive of both birth mothers and adoptive parents since its inception.
Inna earned a Masters in Education in Ukraine, her place of birth, and a Masters in Social Work from Indiana University following her immigration to the United States. She has been a licensed clinical social worker since 1998 and was presented with the IUPUI School of Social Work Distinguished Alumni Award in 2005. Steve earned his law degree from Indiana University and has over 20 years of experience in adoption law. Together, along with our devoted and ambitious team, we work tirelessly to assure not only the success of each adoption, but the well-being of each client throughout and after the adoption process.
At KidsFirst, we pour our hearts into our work to ensure that families are supported throughout the process and that children are placed into the best care possible. We value absolute transparency between families and the KidsFirst staff. We appreciate the trust that you place in us.

KidsFirst International Adoption recently received our reaccreditation through Intercountry Adoption Accreditation and Maintenance Entity (IAAME) and have been Hague-accredited since 2007. We are one of just a handful of Hague-accredited international adoption agencies. The Hague Convention has been ratified by more than 75 countries and was created as a way to establish protections for children, birth parents, and adoptive parents. Our commitment to ethical adoption practices means we only work in countries which have a clear process for declaring children orphans and in need of an adoptive family.
