Why should I work with an agency?
YOUR CHILD CAN BE PLACED WITH A FAMILY WHO LIVES LOCALLY
An adoption agency will help you find the best family for your child. If you decide to place your child for adoption through Adoptions Together, you have the benefit of finding adoptive families in Maryland, DC and Virginia that have completed their home studies. They have undergone criminal history and background checks, as well as child abuse clearances. Each adoptive family has participated in extensive training where they are educated on the complexity of adoption and they are fully prepared for your child to join their family with a lifetime of love and commitment.
YOUR OPEN ADOPTION PLAN IS ENSURED
Should you decide you want to maintain contact with the adoptive family and child, our adoption agency will ensure that you continue to receive letters and photos as your child grows. We can also help you arrange in-person meetings with the adoptive parents and the child. In Maryland, Virginia and DC, your open adoption agreement is a legally binding contract which will protect your interests.
YOU CAN HAVE AS MUCH ONGOING SUPPORT AS YOU WANT
Unlike a facilitator or attorney-assisted adoption where you receive no post-adoptive support, the services provided by our adoption agency don’t stop once the adoption is finalized. We continue to provide the counseling and support you need in the years to come.
YOU DECIDE WHETHER ADOPTION OR ANOTHER OPTION IS RIGHT FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD
Most importantly, at Adoptions Together, our counselors do not attempt to persuade you in any one direction. Adoption may not be right for you. Our counseling will help you understand the options you have and the impact of each of your decisions. We are dedicated to your making the best decision you can for you and your child.
