The vendor contract for the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), Ohio Adoption Photo Listing (OAPL) expired June 30, 2005. The OAPL responsibilities have been assumed by ODJFS until further notice.

Beginning July 1, 2005, agencies must submit registration/amendment, modification and/or withdrawal information pursuant to OAC 5101:2-48-07: Listing and withdrawing children and families with the Ohio Adoption Photo Listing "OAPL web page" and the "OAPL Families Waiting to Adopt Book" to:

Several minor changes have been made to the JFS 01686 "Ohio Adoption Photo Listing (OAPL) Child Registration/Amendment", in addition to the change of the submittal address. They include:

  • The "Child Information" section has been revised to include "Asian" and "Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander" as selections for a child's race/ethnicity.
  • A section has been added to indicate the date the form was submitted to ODJFS.

The JFS 01686 will be available on line at: http://www.odjfs.state.oh.us/forms/inter.asp

It will not be available in hardcopy from the ODJFS warehouse.

Also, please note that OAC 5101:2-48-04 AdoptOhio grant agreement has been rescinded because AdoptOhio grant agreements are no longer issued.
