Adopting

Whatever your family situation, adoption may be a great option to consider. The first thing you'll need to do is determine which type of domestic adoption is right for your family: foster care, older child, or infant adoption. When researching the domestic adoption process, you'll discover the average costs, time frames, and state-specific requirements. This necessary information will be your first step in the adoption process. Having a child placed in your home and immediately becoming a part of your family can be a beautiful and life-changing experience.

Throughout this journey, you'll discover that you're not alone. There are adoption professionals available across the county. They are there to help you reach your end goal of adopting domestically. They can help you navigate the paperwork, fees, and state-specific adoption laws. If you need additional support, support groups are another option. You'll find people who are in similar situations and those who have wisdom and first-hand knowledge to share with you. Their experiences can help fortify and inform you, help you more fully understand the process. Take the time you need to research all your options. The best decision you can make is an informed decision.
