Looking for recs for adoption agencies/ attorneys.

My husband and I are looking to start to the process of adoption for our second child. We’d love to connect with anyone who is already on the path and would also love some recs of agencies or attorneys that have worked for people. 

thank you!!!

Hi - we used Adopt Help out of Sherman Oaks to adopt our son 9 years ago. We chose them because they have broad national reach so would not take as long to have a successful adoption. Good luck on the path and let me know if you have questions.

If you are interested in a domestic adoption, and having a child of color joining your family, then I HIGHLY recommend Pact, An Adoption Alliance.  They are a truly non-profit, local, national leaders, and serve only children of color.  We went through them over 14 years ago, and couldn't have been happier with the process.  They are VERY caring, first to the mother who is pregnant, to assess and serve her needs and preferences, with the ultimate interest of serving the child.  They avoid the roller-coaster ride for prospective adoptive parents, and prepare the prospective adoptive parents ahead of time.  They also continue to support birth parents, and provide ongoing services for adoptees.  The adoption process can be so de-humanizing, but Pact has worked long and hard to change the field, by example, through consultations to other agencies, through workshops, and regional and national conferences.  https://www.pactadopt.org/home.asp
