How To Find A Good Adoption Agency

Adoption, Adoption & Beyond News, Blog

How do you find a good adoption agency? In today’s blog, I’ll show you some tricks to do that well. Here are four different ways to find a good adoption agency:

  1. Research NCFA: Also known as the National Council for Adoption, they have a really nice search tool that will help you. I always recommend starting with the state that you live in because you’re going to need a home study by a licensed agency in your state.
  2. Research IAAME: If you are adopting internationally, a good resource is IAAME which shows you accredited entities. You’re going to want a Hague-accredited agency when you’re adopting internationally. You can work with pretty much whoever you want throughout the United States, but it’s always good to start your search within your state.
  3. Friends & family: You or other people in your life might know someone who has adopted. A good starting point would be asking these people which agency they used or would recommend using based on their experience.
  4. Facebook groups: There are a lot of Facebook groups for adopting families where you can ask questions, especially about recommended adoption agencies. 

You can find the links to NCFA and IAAME down below. That’s it for today’s post. Remember, when it comes to adoption, you have to start somewhere.
