How do I Choose an Adoption Agency?

Walking through the adoption process isn’t an easy task — there are complex details, legal questions, and so many details — not to mention the emotional and mental toll. Choosing the right adoption agency will ensure a smooth process, questions answered, and confidence built that you are making the right decision, the right way!

Consideration 1: What type of adoption are you considering?

Consideration 2: What adoption services do you need?

Consideration 3: Do you prefer a national agency or a local agency?

When you choose Adoption Choices of Texas, we are acting on your behalf. We are a domestic, local, licensed agency. That means we do not do international adoptions – we focus on Texas birth mothers and adoptive families. Being local means we can meet you face-to-face – we can come to you! You aren’t just another woman giving up a baby for adoption — you are a part of our adoption family. We want to know your story, your why, your family — we are here for you. Since we are a licensed agency, we can also provide financial support.

We want to make sure you are confident through the adoption process and comfortable with your decision. We help you fill out paperwork, make tough decisions, we can help choose an adoptive family, and we provide information, resources, and financial support that you need. We also have professional counselors ready to listen and talk and help.

Tips for Choosing an Adoption Agency:

  • Get referrals from friends or others that have placed their child for adoption, or contact an adoption agency to get a list of referrals.
  • Ask how long the agency has been involved in this line of work.
  • Find out if the agency has a history of disrupted adoptions, and if so, the reasons why.
  • Research and develop a list of agencies that appear to meet your requirements.
  • Find out what services they offer both before and after the adoption.
  • Find out the costs of the adoption and the financial obligations of both the birth family and the adoptive family.
  • Ask if the agency places minority or biracial children.
  • Ask about open vs. closed adoption and the agency’s views and experience with each type of adoption.
  • Ask about any contractual obligations.
  • Ask about adoption plans, decrees, and adoption relinquishment.
  • Inquire about the availability and type of counseling.
