  • Tired of waiting a day to have a little Simlet join the family?
  • Are the pitter-patter of puppy and kitten paws just not enough?!
  • Perhaps your Sim is a bit aged, busy or physicaly unable to have a child naturally?
  • Or maybe your Sim would just like to open their heart and home to a Sim child?
  • Just need another community lot to fill in the empty spaces?
    If the answer is YES to any of those, I may have a solution for you...

Presenting, Wee Ones Adoption Center - my upload for the Maternity and Beyond theme! A community lot where you can adopt a baby or toddler on the spot! No waiting and no financial requirement. We have a lovely waiting area with photos of our happy families, a waiting lounge with vending snacks and a garden area if you need to take a small, brisk walk before you select your little one. Our babies and toddlers have a comfortable, quiet nursery decorated with soft, soothing colors and all the comforts young ones require. All that's missing is YOU. Won't you open your home and heart to a wee one soon by placing this community lot in your 'hood?

Sales pitch aside, haha, this lot was made so I could make use of Chris Hatch's adoption cribs (Apartment Life EP or higher required to use the cribs).

With his special cribs, Sims can adopt a baby or toddler on the spot and when they arrive home the new addition will be there waiting for them. As mentioned in his Read Me: "It will not function at a livable lot or if the lot has an owned business, it's for adopting not selling kids. The adoption option is only available to adults that live in a real family that is not already 'Full of Sims'." There are mock offices on the lot to simulate meeting with an adoption specialist, and mock nanny areas in the nursery area, but they are for show/realism.

Remember, this will not work on a livable lot or as an owned business.

- Use the no CC file if you do NOT want Chris Hatch's orphan display cot included.
- You can always replace the cribs with regular Maxis cribs or other custom content to make it your own spin on an adoption center/centre.

The ONLY item of CC included in the lot is the crib. Everything else is Maxis.

I hope you enjoy adding some wee ones to your Sims unique families!

I was wondering when someone would make this adoption center! Thanks so much!
My childless pixels will be grateful for the new addition to their families!

@FranH - Thank you so much! I was surprised it hasn't been done! It's been an idea since they first announced the theme, so I'm happy to see it come to life too.

Not sure how I'd use it, but I still wanted to comment because it's really cute. I've never been to an adoption center but this is exactly what I'd want one to look like. It's very cute. I especially like the color combinations in the crib-area. Very well done!

@gummilutt - Aww, thanks for the nice comment! I love the colors in the crib area too, they're so soft and soothing. If you wanted, you could swap the food area for some kind of parenting class section? Just an idea...

@olyoldone - Thank you so much!

This is a neat way to approach sim adoption! I made a foster care / adoption center a while ago to go with a challenge I'm writing, and I had never heard of this adoption crib! Brilliant. I also love how you put those lamps inside the fence at reception - clever! Thank you!

@Phaenoh - Thank you! *blush* I figured it would be neat idea to make a lot around Chris's awesome item, and I'm pleased it seems well-received.
