As an adoptive parent, you have many options for finding the child who will make your family complete. While there are many great adoption agencies around the world and countless options online, working with a local adoption agency has benefits that those other options can’t provide.
A local adoption agency provides you with a caring and dedicated resource to help you reach your goal of welcoming a new member into your family. Here are few reasons why working with a local agency might be the best choice for you.
A Guiding Hand
Adoption is a complex process. There are regulations to work through and things can change in an instant depending on the wishes of the birth family. Having someone to guide you through the process can make it feel less overwhelming.
Adoption Makes Family covers every aspect of the adoption process and provides you with a single point of contact each time you contact us. You’ll be working with someone who will genuinely get to know you and your family.
Your local counselor will be by your side every step of the way from the initial consultation, to the waiting for a match, to the placement of the baby into your home and through to the finalization of your adoption. We make personal connections with all of our families and want to make sure that the moment you meet your child for the first time receives the attention that such a monumental occasion deserves.
Staying on Track
There are several steps you need to take in order to make an adoption a reality. There’s an application to fill out and a home study to complete, among other things.
A local adoption agency works with you to ensure that all of these details are complete. The last thing you want is to miss out on an adoption opportunity because of incomplete paperwork; we’ll help make sure that does not happen.
The home study social worker at Adoption Makes Family has been conducting home studies for more than 20 years. We approach the home study with a focus on screening a family in to the adoption process.
The home study process is another opportunity for us to answer your questions on the adoption process and make sure you are ready for the new addition to your family. We also provide online resources to help you complete all necessary adoption paperwork.
A local adoption agency can also connect you to other local families who have already completed their adoption.
Adoption Makes Family has gatherings and social events for adoptive families who have adopted through Adoption Makes Family. You can take comfort in knowing that there are others who know what you are going through and understand how you feel. Your adopted child will also have a sense of community with other adopted children. These social networks allow children grow up together and celebrate milestones along the way.
Even if you aren’t sure about adopting just yet, a local agency like Adoption Makes Family can offer advice and help you determine whether adoption will be a good fit for your family.
