Adoption Search

One of the things that you are going to want to talk about with your friends and family is perhaps an agency that they have used, because referrals may be one way to start your search. The internet is also a wonderful tool for researching the kind of programs that various agencies have. In metropolitan areas however, it is probably fairly easy to find an agency that will service your needs and if not, can refer you to the appropriate agency. Most social workers and adoption agencies are aware of adoption agencies throughout the country that serve special needs.
