Today, I want to talk about the four crucial things your adoption agency should do for you. Adoption is a journey filled with questions, emotions, and decisions, and your agency should be there to guide and support you every step of the way.
- Answering Your Questions
One of the most important roles your adoption agency should play is being a reliable source of information. You should never hesitate to reach out with your questions, no matter how small or numerous they may be. At Adoption & Beyond, we understand that adoption is a significant decision, and we’re always ready to provide answers and clarity. We recently had a family who contacted us multiple times, asking thoughtful questions, and that’s perfectly okay. Your peace of mind is our priority.
- Being Your Advocate
Your adoption agency should be your strongest advocate. From the initial stages of your adoption journey to the moment you welcome a child into your family and beyond, they should stand by your side. Effective communication is key. They should check in with you regularly, not just during the waiting period but even after placement, ensuring you have the support you need.
- Meeting Your Expectations
Your agency should be dedicated to meeting your expectations. If something is bothering you or if your needs are not being met, don’t hesitate to communicate with them. Often, agencies may not be aware of issues unless you voice your concerns. You should should be proactive in asking for the support you need during every stage of the adoption process.
- Providing Clarity and Timelines
In addition to answering your questions, your agency should keep you informed about important milestones and paperwork deadlines. Knowing what to expect and when to expect it can greatly reduce stress during this process. A transparent and organized agency should make sure you are always aware of the next steps in your adoption journey.
Bonus: Support for Expectant Parents
Your agency should be supporting the expecting parents who are considering adoption as well. It’s essential that the expecting parents understand the steps involved and have clear expectations on next steps when making an adoption plan. Your agency should guide them through the process, ensuring that their needs are being met and their concerns are being addressed as well.
