The Benefits of Working with a Local Adoption Agency

A smaller, local adoption agency, like Adoption Makes Family, offers several benefits over large adoption agencies.

You Receive a Personal Touch

As a smaller adoption agency, we are here because we care. So when you contact Adoption Makes Family, we ensure that you talk to the same person every time you call. You will not be transferred from department to department and you will never to deal with automated messages. You will speak to a real, live person who truly cares about you and your child.

We Know the Area – We Know the People

Adoption Makes Family is a licensed, non-profit agency that works with both birth and adoptive parents here in Maryland. Because we are local, we screen our local adoptive parents ourselves using both a detailed Application and Home Study. This allows us to more carefully and effectively match birth and adoptive parents. Then, if you choose to, you can meet the prospective adoptive parents face-to-face. We may be able to set up subsequent meetings as well.

We Are Right around the Corner

Adoption Makes Family is here for you throughout the process, from your initial phone call to the day you give birth and, if you choose, post-adoption counseling. You are welcome to meet with your adoption counselor or we will help you to find a counselor in an area close to you.

We Are Monitored by the State of Maryland

A local adoption agency is a licensed and state-monitored organization and thus has greater accountability to local and state laws and regulations. Adoption Makes Family is a non-profit (501-C3), licensed adoption agency based in Maryland. We are here to help you as you consider what option will be the best for you and your baby. If you have any questions or wish to start the adoption process, you can contact us by e-mail – or use our online contact form.
