Starting Your Adoption Adventure

So, you have decided to adopt a child? What a wonderful, happy time in your life! You have just made one of the best life decisions you’ll ever make! While deciding to adopt is a joyous time, beginning the adoption process can be stressful and frightening. Adoption assistance is here to help you through this process.

Understanding the adoption process

We know from personal experience that it is difficult to wait patiently for the adoption process to occur. We know you just want to bring your child home! It is important for you to realize that adoption time frames can vary drastically depending on various programs.

Typically adoptive parents bring their child home 6-18 months from the time they initially apply. Please keep in mind that this is an AVERAGE time quote. Each adoption is an individual process and brings with it the possibility of unpredictable variables.

We feel it is crucial that prospective adoptive parents become educated in the adoption process. Understanding the steps involved prepares families for what lies ahead. With understanding comes patience. We’ll take you step by step through the process which we have outlined below and do our best to help make your adoption progress as smoothly and quickly as possible.

People love working with us

Five years ago we were blessed to use Adoption Assistance in conjunction with American Adoptions to bring our son into our home. The social worker was so kind and attentive and helped to guide our adoption process. We are blessed to still see the way Adoption Assistance continues to work to bring families together.

Adoption Assistance is amazing and helped us complete our family in 2017. We were home study approved in January of 2017 and, through the awesome networking they do with agencies and adoption attorneys, we brought our little guy home in April of the same year! Julie is outstanding and very attentive and was there with us every step of the way
