Infant Adoption

Contact Us to Learn More

Our Infant Adoption Program is for couples and singles interested in babies that need to be adopted. Through this program, both the birth parents and the prospective adoptive parents are clients of Adoption Options. Birth parent counselors and adoptive family caseworkers work collaboratively to best serve the needs of everyone involved in the adoption circle – birth parents, adoptive parents, and most especially, children.

Families interested in adopting must go through a SAFE assessment and approval process that will take a couple of months and includes, among other things, state and federal background checks, home visits and personal history review. Once a family has been approved, they are added to the pool of prospective adoptive families from which birth parents will choose.

Our Infant Adoption Program is available to couples who have been married or in a domestic partnership for at least one and a half years and who are at least 25 years of age. Single applicants are also welcome in the program. Applicants must have no more than one healthy infant experience, by birth or by adoption.

We typically hold Information Nights to go through the Infant Adoption Program, the process, fees, etc. and to answer initial questions. This is a great first step if you're starting to look whether Infant Adoption is right for you. Check our call or email the agency to find out when the next Information Night will be held.
