Can someone direct me to some good agencies for adoption in the US? We have an 11 month old and in the next year or so would love to adopt a toddler

Thanks

Kim

I don't know. I haven't started down that path and am here for info myself. I just wanted to say welcome. This is a very helpful group.

Hi and welcome!! We have friends who adopted a baby girl just a few months ago through Gladney and I know they were very happy with their experience. Good luck on your journey to adoption!!

Local Department of Social Services have adoption agencies that you can adopt through. It is also sometimes free to do it. Check that out and see. That is who we are going through for our adoption to adopt a newborn baby! They are really great here.

We have adopted two boys through the state foster/adopt agency. You can call your local social services/division of family services and ask about the process.

Hi, I was adopted through Adoptive Families for Children. Out of Keene, New Hampshire. The director of the agency is Ardie Lee. She's a very kind woman, and she started the angency herself and has always been there. It was opened in 1983. I don't know about any of the current circumstances of course, but it's always worth a try

We went through a private agency in IL.
However, my sister who went through the same agency, attended post placement playgroups and one couple had gone with Gladney I believe twice.
If that helps.
I chose on referrals and checking around.
We were specifically interested in a newborn, God answered our prayers on Dec. 1st. Amen.
