For Prospective Adoptive Families
You have several options to choose from when it comes to building your family through adoption.
You’ve decided you want to adopt a baby from the United States, also known as Domestic Adoption. There are many options available to you. Your choice in how to proceed comes down to what your comfort level is with regard to your adoption options.
Factors such as, financial costs, time, effort, potential risks, and more will all determine which option is the best option for your family. You have to consider the cost involved in adopting various children; whether you are willing to travel; how much risk you are willing to assume; how important having medical background information is to you; how long you want the process to take; and how much “openness” you are willing to have with the natural parents. There are pros and cons to each option. There are no right or wrong answers and the choice that each couple makes will be entirely different, depending on their priorities.
- OPTION ONE: Select a licensed child placing adoption agency with which you want to work.
- OPTION TWO: Use your own contacts to find a birthmother on your own. An adoption attorney will be able to provide help with this adoption option.
- OPTION THREE: Use an adoption facilitator.
- OPTION FOUR: Use the state Department Of Human Resources and go through the foster-to-adopt process.
I tell everyone who is just beginning the adoption process that a good resource is a monthly magazine called Adoptive Families. Visit Adoptive Families Magazine web site. This magazine is available at many local bookstores.
