Adopt a baby

The journey of adoption may seem daunting and surreal. However, rest assured. You are not alone. Our primary goal is to help you through the process, making it more manageable and a reality.

Prospective adoptive parents can expect our dedicated professionals to guide them through the process of exploring adoption, fulfilling the requirements necessary for adoption, and beginning their adoption search.

Our experienced staff will help you every step of the way

We understand that many couples cannot conceive a child for medical or other reasons. We also appreciate there are single individuals who are exploring adoption services. The professionals at Adoption Makes Family have many years of experience in adoption services, helping couples and singles explore their options for creating or growing their family. Each social worker is highly trained and experienced to assist prospective adoptive parents, providing counseling, adoption education and placement services. We are prepared to meet your adoption needs in a personal, compassionate and professional manner.

Getting Started

The adoption process begins with a telephone call to one of our staff who will advise you on the steps necessary. Both an Application and Home Study are required to begin the adoption process.

Once the home study application is reviewed and accepted, Adoption Makes Family will work with you every step of the way to help you realize your dream of a loving family. Our services include domestic adoption through Adoption Makes Family as well as networking with other agencies for domestic and international adoption.

Our staff is available to guide you in creating a “Dear Birth Mother Letter” and photo album, which will be presented to birth parents as they search for the adoptive parents who will adopt their child.

We thank you for considering Adoption Makes Family in your process of growing your family.
