What Should I Ask about an Adoption Professional’s Qualifications?


Find out how many years of experience they have in the field of adoption, the number of adoptions they have completed, and how many birth mothers they work with as well as reclaim rates in domestic adoption. The Adoption Professional you choose should be experienced with the type of adoption you are considering.

You should also determine if they are in compliance with the state laws regarding licensing or bonding. This will vary between attorney, agency and facilitator, and if they are members of the Better Business Bureau, and any other professional organization within the adoption field.

Discuss their commitment to post adoption follow-up, because adoption involves attention to the needs of the adoptive family, adopted child, and birth family over a lifetime. The Adoption Professionals should be working with all of the aspects of planning, management and assessment in your adoption and offer an open door policy for visiting their office and staff working on your behalf.

The Adoption Professional’s staff and their office facilities should include extensive services for you and your birth mother, security of your files and identity and be able to accommodate 24-hour live assistance for emergencies to their clients and be able to support all of the components of their adoption programs.

Lifetime Adoption Center offers these qualities and many more benefits for their clients to create an adoption you desire.
