Are You Working With an Adoption Expert?
Chances are likely that you and your spouse are going to be implementing the use of an adoption professional throughout your adoption process. It's important that you are working with an adoption professional who is knowledgeable and demonstrates an expertise when it comes to placing little bundles of joy into a new, loving home.
You don't want to be working with an adoption agency/professional that claims to have expertise when it comes to placing children but that cannot demonstrate that this is really the case. It's critical that you and your spouse develop a checklist prior to visiting adoption agencies/professionals. At the beginning of the adoption process, you should be handling the situation as if it's a scientific study. Take a lot of notes and do a lot of research. This will ensure that you will be working with an adoption expert throughout the duration of your adoption process.
One of the most important questions you should ask a prospective adoption agency/professional is,”How many newborns have you successfully placed?” Of course, if you want to adopt an older child, you will replace “newborn” with “older child.” If the adoption agency/professional fails to answer the question, this may not be the adoption expert that's right for you. You need to be working with an adoption agency/professional that is able to demonstrate a success rate to you in regards to placing newborns or older children into homes. Also, if they do give you an answer, but it's a relatively low amount, this could indicate that the agency/professional is selective when it comes to choosing prospective adoptive parents.
As always, if you would like more information about choosing the proper adoption agency for you and your family, please get in touch with Radis Adoptions.
