AdoptMatch believes adoption
works best when there is...
01. SEPARATE LEGAL REPRESENTATION
Expectant mothers are provided separate legal representation as soon as possible after the match is made, unless they refuse separate legal representation, in writing.
02. POST-ADOPTION CONTACT
A specific plan for post-adoption contact between the placing parent/s and the adoptive parent/s is reduced to writing, whether or not it is enforceable in the state where the finalization occurs. If the state allows, the post-adoption contact agreement is filed with the court.
03. POST-ADOPTION SUPPORT
Expectant mothers are offered the pre and post-placement support they need, including a minimum of ten (10) sessions of post-placement grief counseling with a licensed therapist.
04. NO EXCESSIVE FEES
Adoption professionals are reasonably compensated for their services, but do not charge excessive fees or fees unrelated to services actually rendered.
