So you’ve decided on adopting domestically,
here comes the fun part,
what do you do next?
Who do you contact?
What’s the cheapest way to adopt?
“I don’t care who, what, when, where, I just know God is calling me to adopt.”
So how do I adopt?
1. Check locally first.
Call up Crisis Pregnancy Centers.
Drop off a personal family profile (contact information included!)
to local hospitals, OB/GYNs, and women’s shelters.
2. Research the different ways to adopt domestically:
a. fostering to adopt through the state
b. adopting through a private adoption lawyer
c. working with a birthmother facilitator
d. signing up with an adoption agency
* If you are medically infertile, look into catholic charities
and other organizations who facilitate adoptions at less cost.
There are pros and cons to all of these.
3. Talk with others who’ve adopted.
If you don’t know anyone who has, google.
Usually once you meet one person who has adopted,
they have contacts with others as well!
