Are you interested in adopting from the United States?

Adoption Associates has a top-notch team of professionals that is well versed in adoption law and that works tirelessly to ensure legal compliance throughout the adoption process.

AAI’s domestic adoption program opened in 1990 and since that time we’ve been helping pregnant women who are planning adoption find permanent families for their unborn children. AAI has assisted with thousands of adoptions of infants right here in the United States. In addition to agency-matched adoptions, AAI can help if you have already identified and established a relationship with an expectant parent.

Many expectant parents are interested in developing a relationship with an adoptive family before their baby is born. AAI supports all types of adoption (fully open, semi open, closed) based on the desires of expectant parents and the fit with an adoptive family. We carefully work with expectant parents and adoptive parents to identify their preferences and make matches that align with everyone’s expectations.

To learn more or to discuss your specific adoption situation, give us a call at 800-677-2367 or send an email. We look forward to meeting you!

Most families waiting with Adoption Associates have a successful placement in 15-24 months after completion of their home study and profile. Birth parents generally want to select and meet the family they have chosen, so you will need to wait for the birth parent who decides that you can offer her baby the family and future she wants for her baby. Applicants open to adopting children of any races, or situations with substance abuse exposure for the infant, or greater degrees of openness will usually have a shorter wait.

Adoption is a permanent plan and biological parents cannot come back to take a child once parental rights have been terminated. The legal process is carefully monitored, and birth parents voluntarily release their parental rights prior to the legal adoption. The termination hearing or release is typically 2-6 weeks after delivery. A child may be placed in your home directly from the hospital on a legal risk basis prior to the termination of parental rights and this situation can put a family at risk of a birth mother changing her mind before termination.

“Thank you so much for all that you have done for us. You have allowed our family to be complete, even more than we thought possible, because we didn’t begin adoption knowing how much we would value and treasure our birth mothers. We consider them family, along with our children. God has given us a bigger gift than we asked for; thank you for being the instrument that brought us together.”

“We are so grateful to everyone at Adoption Associates for helping our baby boy to find us! Our caseworker and birth mother caseworker were great and always willing to answer our questions.”

“Words will never be able to describe what AAI has done for us. You came highly recommended to us, and you exceeded our expectations. We were extremely impressed with the professionalism, care, and support. Thank you with all our hearts!”
