About Private Adoptions
Is there a cost?
When a family decides to go through the private adoption process, they are required to pay a fee. This fee is used by the private adoption agency to conduct a home study with the help of a social worker. The social worker will also provide guidance to the family regarding the regulatory laws related to private domestic adoption set by CDSS.
Do you have a child you will adopt from their birth parents and need additional support?
EA can help assist your private adoption with comprehensive knowledge of court documentation and negotiation with birth families. There is an adoption application and a private domestic adoption fee.
Are you a birth mother looking for advice on what your options are?

What is the difference between private domestic adoptions versus fostering to adopt a child?
When a family fosters to adopt, they become a certified resource (foster) home, and the child placed with them becomes a dependent of the state. Foster children of various ages, including many school-age children and teenagers, require placement in such homes. It is important to understand that adoption may not be the outcome for every child.
