Adoption Options

Private Adoption

The placement of a US born infant for adoption by the birth parent(s) who legally consent to the adoption with an adoptive family or through an agency.

Foster Care Adoption

The adoption of a child in foster care whose biological parents’ rights have been terminated by a court. Kids in foster care can range in ages between 12 months and 20 years of age.

Foster to Adopt

An individual or couple decides to care for a child while the biological parents are being evaluated by the court system. If a family ultimately wants to adopt, fostering can be risky, as sometimes the child is placed back in the home of the biological family. However, if a family longs for a younger child, fostering to adopt might be a wise decision.

International Adoption

This is a kind of adoption where a child is adopted from a foreign country. There are many counties what allow American to adopt but the rules frequently change and a dossier must be submitted for international approval. This process can be daunting. With International adoption parental right are terminated before a child is placed for adoption.
