ADOPTION PARTNER

Considering a domestic adoption in the US? Domestic adoptions may be arranged independently or through private adoption agencies depending on the state in which the prospective adoptive parents reside.

It is our goal as an agency to get to know you so that we can best support you throughout your adoption journey.

Domestic adoption is complex, because each state has separate and different laws governing adoption. For this reason, it is important to hire qualified, experienced adoption and legal experts who will assist you with navigating the complexities of your adoption

Adoption Partner invites you to choose us as your adoption partner. Our licensed child placement offices in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Texas and Wyoming provide the services which are required in each state to assist families interested in a domestic adoption.

Colorado is known as an “agency state” meaning all adoption services (home study and post placement services) must be completed by a licensed adoption agency both in Colorado and out of state.

We do not provide placement services (meaning locating and matching you to a child to adopt). Instead, Adoption Partner offers you flexibility to work nationally with any licensed placing agency or attorney of your choice. This allows you to spread your search for a child much broader than just your home state of Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Texas or Wyoming. This networking effort, in turn, often greatly reduces the time it takes to welcome a child into your family.

We are able to provide home study, networking referrals and post placement services, guiding you in the finalization process of your adoption. We are able to provide you with a list of agencies and attorneys recommended by previous adoptive parents and will gladly work with you and the licensed agency of your choice to ensure you meet your state’s requirements. We are also able to help with your interstate adoption process and are very familiar with the requirements of the ICPC regulations.

Let CCAI help prepare and support you for the most exciting journey of your life!
