Adopting a Child
Every child. Every family. Every step of the way.
The first steps of your adoption journey can be daunting. Exploring all of the child adoption alternatives available to you is a good place to start. Adoptions Together can help you adopt an infant, an older child who is growing up in the public foster care system, or a child from another country. Regardless of which direction your journey takes, we will be by your side every step of the way.
Since opening our doors in 1990, Adoptions Together has helped nearly 3000 children join healthy, loving families. We would like to help you in your journey to adopt a child.
Please consider joining us at one of our regularly scheduled information meetings
in Maryland or Virginia to learn more about adopting a child and becoming an adoptive parent.

Domestic Adoption - Adopting an Infant
Every year, we help hundreds of women faced with the difficult decision of whether to place their newborns for adoption. When infant adoption is chosen, we help birthparents choose the best adoptive family for their child from the prospective adoptive parents who are working with us.
Adopting a Child from Foster Care
In the United States, there are more than 100,000 children growing up in public foster care, waiting to be adopted by a loving family. Most are over the age of 10 and have spent years in the foster care system. These children are languishing in foster care and desperately need (and rightfully deserve) a permanent family to call their own.
Adopting a child from foster care brings special challenges and requires flexibility, patience, and commitment. Adoptions Together will support you every step of the way as you face those challenges. If you are interested in adopting a child from foster care, we can help.
Across the world, there are millions of children waiting to be adopted. With our help, you can adopt a child from Asia or Eastern Europe. We completed our first Russian child adoption in 1992 and our first Chinese child adoption in 1993. Adoptions Together is a Hague-accredited international adoption agency and we are accredited in China.
