    First you need to find an adoption agency in your state.  Then you will schedule your homestudy.  A homestudy consists of you providing your caseworker with the relevant documentation, including your birth certificate and having your caseworker visit your home to ensure that you and your family are ready to bring a child into your home.  Start looking through your states waiting child list to find a child that your interested in.  Then you will contact your caseworker who will then contact the caseworker representing the child.  Once your caseworker notifies you that you have been chosen you will meet with the child several times.  After you've met with the child several times, you'll complete the required paperwork, and wait for the child to be placed in your home, which will be followed by the finalization of the adoption.

    It is wonderful that you are considering adoption! There are thousands of children, in the United States, who are in need of a nurturing, caring, and understanding forever home.  I, myself, have adopted children through the foster care system, and am always excited to share my experience with others.

    One of the misperceptions about adoption, is that it always costs the adoptive family or individual thousands of dollars to adopt.  When you adopt through the foster care system, or even through some private agencies, you will be provided with an attorney and there are no adoption fees.  In fact, you can negotiate with the state to receive a monthly, tax-free stipend to help with the needs of the child or children that you are adopting.

    To begin your search for adoptable children in your area, start by calling your state's child welfare department to find out what you need to do to begin the adoption process.  Ask them where you can begin your search for a child or children, who would be a good match for your family and lifestyle. If you have a "Heart Gallery" in your area, give them a call.  The "Heart Gallery" organization is a wonderful resource for individuals who are looking to adopt.

    There are many wonderful books on adoption, and I would encourage you to learn as much as you can about the inherent issues that come with adoption, the often-present issues of children in the foster care system, and the many resources that  are available to help adoptive families succeed.

    Best wishes to you as you explore adoption!
