AdoptMatch | The 5 Questions Adoptive Parents Should Ask Any Adoption Professional

If you’re considering adoption, it’s crucial to know which questions to ask an adoption professional before hiring them. Working with the right adoption professional offers the expertise, guidance, and information you need to ensure your family is protected and supported throughout the adoption process. But working with the wrong person or organization will negatively impact your adoption experience in significant ways.

So, how do you know who to hire? It’s not easy. Most adoption professionals make similar promises to hopeful adoptive parents – they’ll “be with you through every step of the adoption process,” will “help you achieve your dreams of parenthood,” and are “available 24/7.” Most adoption websites proudly display photos of impossibly cute babies, joyous adoptive parents, and selfless, contented birth mothers. What could possibly go wrong? A lot.

When choosing an adoption professional, start by asking the following questions:

“Working with the right adoption professional offers the expertise, guidance, and information you need to ensure your family is protected and supported throughout the adoption process.”
