The right adoption professional will give you expert guidance, support, and the information you need to make sure you and your child are cared for and protected. But working with the wrong organization or person will negatively impact your adoption experience and your child in significant ways.

So, how do you know who to hire? It’s not easy. Many adoption professionals make big promises to expectant mothers – they will “be with you through every step of the adoption process,” “help you find the perfect family for your baby,” and “allow you to decide how your adoption will go.” Most adoption websites proudly display photos of smiling pregnant women; some feature glowing testimonials from birth mothers who say they had terrific adoption experiences. What could possibly go wrong? A lot.
