Are you pregnant and considering adoption? Have you already delivered and are unable to care for your newborn? Adoption agencies, also known as child placing agencies, help match birth mothers with adoptive families.
Adoption agencies also offer birth mothers a variety of services, which may include:
- Unplanned pregnancy counseling.
- Childbirth education.
- An adoption plan.
- Legal assistance.
- Pregnancy-related medical care.
- Assistance with housing and living expenses.
- Pre- and post-adoption counseling and support groups.
- After-delivery adoption.
You may search for each agency’s regulatory history on the Child Placing Agencies for Adoption webpage.
