What Are Your Adoption Options?
You have made your decision to adopt a child. Now it is time to consider all the adoption options and choose the one that is best for you.
There are four main options for adopting a child.
One is to locate a public adoption agency. The government will fund this option, so it will not cost you much to pay for the rights and means to adopt a child. However, it does mean that you will have a longer waiting period because the adoption is more affordable.
A second option available to you is to adopt a child by going through a private adoption agency. You will probably be required to pay at least $8,000 for their services and chances are, this will not matter to you if you are adopting a child from an agency based overseas or even locally. Another benefit to paying the higher price is a guaranteed shorter waiting period.
A third option you may want to consider is through independent means. You can look to friends; relatives or you may have other contacts who can help you in locating couples who are seeking good adoptive parents for the child they are giving up for adoption. And if everyone concerned can reach a friendly agreement, you may only be required to pay for the legal expenses.
The last of the four options would be to foster children in order to adopt . You will need to become a foster parent first and then, when and if the child goes up for adoption you may possibly be entitled to adopt the child if you have bonded with the them.
