Prospective parents may choose to work with a private adoption agency to assist in locating adoption opportunities. Private agencies typically require their clients to receive training and counseling to prepare them for the adoption journey.
With private agency adoptions, birth parents relinquish their rights to an agency and prospective parents work with the agency. The criteria for prospective parents vary depending on the agency, with more restrictions placed on parents seeking infant adoptions. Often prospective parents working with an agency will contact Debra Finch for advice as to their agency contract and to help evaluate potential adoption opportunities offered through their agency.
After the identified or matched child is born, the agency will place the child with the prospective parent(s), who will then be responsible for finalizing the adoption by hiring an attorney and filing a Petition for Adoption.
