Private Domestic Adoption
Families can choose to partner with an agency or adopt independently. We encourage families to consider adopting from foster care as an alternative to private birth parent adoption simply because there are many children waiting for parents right now. Also, the Foster To Adopt process only requires minimal out of pocket expenses that are usually reimbursed once the adoption is finalized.
