Adoptive Placement Services

With the advent of the Internet, the field of adoption is experiencing a major shift in how birth and adoptive families are becoming connected with one another. Over the last several years the internet has become important in the process. More and more women who are considering adoption are searching the internet to locate adoption services, and prospective adoptive families.

In order to be more helpful to our clients, Adoptions of Indiana offers networking, matching, and full placement services to our clients. This will allow expectant women to have options counseling and support services available to them immediately and will provide a way to directly connect with prospective adoptive parents through our agency.  We strive to develop relationships with prospective adoptive parents that are close, supportive, relaxed and genuine in nature so that our families will feel comfortable seeking guidance from us when needed.

Consultations take place at Adoptions of Indiana's office and typically last about 90 minutes.

FAQ's

Our placement program policy requires prospective adoptive families complete a full adoptive home study including background checks, pre-adoption education, medical screening, financial disclosures and home visits.  Applicants must be at least 25 years of age, live in the state of Indiana and be a citizen of the United States. If you are adopting as a couple, Adoptions of Indiana requires couples to be married for a minimum of two years.

If you work with our agency through the entire placement process, the cost is approximately $30,000. This includes your required background checks, education, home study, networking and matching services, as well as assistance for your birth mom and legal fees. Please review our fee schedule for more information.

The home study process takes approximately 8-10 weeks to complete. Once you are home study approved, you will begin networking and be eligible to be matched with expectant moms. The waiting period varies greatly depending upon your openness to different situations (i.e. race, drug and alcohol exposure, mental health history, etc.)  Our expectant parents choose the family for their baby and their desires will be taken into consideration, rather than waiting time.

Absolutely! We welcome the opportunity to help you start or grow your family!

Our agency is a firm believer in the benefits of open adoption for all parties. Degrees of openness vary by circumstance and our staff will help you navigate the relationship with your child's birth family.
