Adopting Families

Adoptiing Families

Married couples and single persons are trying to adopt children in ever increasing numbers and, in general, are running into ever increasing waiting periods or other problems.


Frequently, in order to get to the point of contacting an adoption agency or adoption expert, each person must recognize  and accept that the important issue for them is not to biologically create a child, but rather it is being able to parent a child with love, understanding and guidance.

If you have not yet reached this point but want some assistance, a psychologist, social worker, or other mental health professional may be able to help.  However, if you ready emotionally, physically, and financially ready to consider adoption, do not wait any longer.  Contact an adoption specialist, adoption agency or adoption attorney.

In general there are two kinds of adoption, domestic child adoption and international child adoption.  In turn, a domestic adoption will be either an intrastate or interstate adoption and will be either an open or closed adoption. 

I have created several specific websites to help you with adoption whether it is a domestic or international child adoption, intrastate or interstate adoption or an open or closed adoption.

Adoption Services, a non-profit adoption agency is licensed in multiple states and is able to help an adoptive family living anywhere in the U.S. and even in a foreign country to adopt a healthy newborn, infant or child.  Adoption Services can help a person or family interested in either a domestic adoption or an international adoption with a full range of child adoption services.  Adoption Services has helped over 9,000 birth mothers, birth fathers, and adopting persons and, over the years, has completed almost 1,000 adoptive placements.

Adopting Family Resources will provide you with information about all types of adoption and adoption related issues. The site also provides much more including pre-adoption, adoption, and post-adoption information. 

International Adoption Help is a comprehensive website dealing with international adoption.  It can help you whether you are adopting from one of the two most popular countries, China and Russia or form any other country.

Child adoption Laws provides you with the adoption laws of all 50 states.  It provides information about domestic adoption laws, interstate adoption law, international adoption law, and other important adoption related legislation.

Child Adoption Resources, the website you are looking at now, and includes general help as well as help specific to your state of residence.  At the end of this page you will be able to click on a chart to find your state-specific information. Or you can skip the rest of this description and click now on you state of residence that is listed in the right hand column.

Pregnancy And Children was created to help any woman who wants to know more about pregnancy and children. There is a special section for those women suffering from infertility who would like to get pregnant or adopt a child.

Would You Like Personal Assistance?

Adoption can bring with it adjustment issue for the birth mother, birth father, adoptive parents and for the adoptee. Charting a course among the various schools of thought about openness, maintaining a child's connection to his or her family of origin, answering a child's difficult questions, helping a child deal with birth parents who may not maintain regular contact, and dealing with adoption issues in general, are all issues that birth parents as well as adoptive families and the adoptee may struggle with.

For over 40 years, I have been helping birth parents and families and has provided therapy and counseling to all parties involved in the adoption process. In my role as the Director of a not-for-profit agency I have helped literally thousand of birth mothers, birth fathers, and adopting families navigate their way through the complicated adoption process.
