I can answer questions related to domestic newborn adoption. I cannot answer questions about the foster care system or international adoption.

Experience

I have two adopted children and both were adopted at birth here in the U.S.A. Our first adoption experience began with an agency and then we ended up using an adoption attorney for the adoption. Our second adoption was a private adoption with an adoption attorney only.
