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 6000 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.

Information packets about each of our child adoption and placement programs can be downloaded by visiting each program area on our site.

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.

International Adoption

There are children in foreign countries who are in need of families. Our agency assists families with the international adoption process by providing a home study, training and support services.
