Thinking About Adoption?
If you’re considering adopting, what do you need to know? Let us walk you through the process.
Step 1: Fill out our adoption application. This gathers information about your background, citizenship, marital status, medical history and employment. It asks questions about your adoption preferences.

Step 2: Learn about the aspects of adoption. After completing your application, you will be contacted by an adoption consultant to set up a meeting to discuss the details of adoption. We will help you decide what is best for you and your family.
Step 3: Complete your home study. In order to adopt a child, you will need to complete a home study in the state in which you reside, ensuring you are prepared for adoption. We will work with you to answer any questions you may have. We recognize how stressful this can be, and we are here to help you!
Step 4: Match process. We will guide you to make a “profile book” with your family’s story. The profile book will be shared with potential birth mothers. We will be there to support you during this crucial step.
Step 5: Bring home your baby and finalize the adoption. After placement, we provide post-placement supervision — an important part of the adoption process — as required by each state. We will be there to support you as you settle in as a new family.
