The Adoption Process Starts With the First Small Step

Whether you are seeking an infant adoption through an agency, intend to adopt a child from an extended family member, or are interested in adopting a stepchild after remarriage, we can help. We will answer all of your questions clearly, honestly and with a purpose to make sure you understand the complexity of the legal process.

Every Adoption Is Different Because Every Family and Child Is Different

Everyone has heard a horror story about denied adoptions or failed adoptions. Yes, there are reasons why some people can’t proceed. But I believe that resolving a problem begins with understanding the underlying issues and using forethought and knowledge of the process to overcome challenges. The adoption process is not a piece of legal machinery. Adoption agencies and services are made up of real people who are very concerned about the emotional impact on the child and family.
