How adoption support services can help your new family adjust

New families of any kind go through changes they could never have imagined. Adoptive parents are no different. When the long adoption process is finally over, you might feel overwhelmed by the prospect of finally being a parent. You've probably heard it before, but it's worth saying again: There is nothing wrong with asking for help.

How to spot an adoption scam

In most cases, adoption helps bring a new family together. Adoptive parents go through a rigorous process to ensure that they are ready to bring their child home. Birth mothers can have peace of mind knowing their baby is going to a loving home. But sometimes, an adoptive parent’s hopes are preyed upon by someone with an ulterior motive.

Who makes the decisions in a stepchild adoption?

You've been with your spouse for a few years now, and together with your stepchild you've created a new family unit. You want to make it official and adopt the child, but how? In some ways, stepchild adoption can be much easier than other forms of adoption. But it can also present unique challenges.

Can adoption agencies discriminate against prospective parents?

Five years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court made a monumental decision that effectively turned the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA)—a law designed to protect religious minorities—on its head. In the case of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby, the Court ruled 5-4 that a Christian owner of a for-profit corporation may use their own religious beliefs to dictate the company’s actions.

What are the requirements of a home study?

A home study is required in almost all adoption cases. It is one of the first steps in the adoption process—a prerequisite to identifying a prospective adoptee. This process gives adoption entities an inside look into your suitability as a parent and the child-safe environment of your home.
