You may not feel emotionally ready to care for a baby. You might not have support from your family. You might have an unstable relationship with the birthfather.

What should I look for in an adoptive family?
What to look for in an adoptive family is totally up to you. Before choosing a family, ask yourself what your own hopes and dreams are for your baby. Take that vision and compare it to what you see in adoptive families. Are you looking for a traditional, two-parent household? Is there a specific state or region you’d like the family to be located? Would you prefer a family with a stay-at-home parent? Is religion important to you? We can also help you create a list of questions to ask adoptive families as you make your decision. Learn More »
How are adoptive families screened?
Every adoptive parent working with Angel Adoption has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. The home study process includes assessments of the parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child. Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!
What are the types of adoption I can choose from?
You have the option of choosing an open adoption, a semi-open adoption, or a closed adoption. In a closed adoption, you and the adoptive parents remain anonymous for the entire process. With an open adoption or semi-open adoption, you can choose the adoptive family and decide on the amount of contact during and after the adoption. Learn More »
