North Carolina Adoption Guide

Welcome, Tar Heels! This guide was written to provide you with a single place to find information about adoption within your own state. It will walk you through everything from laws that will impact your adoption to reviews of adoption service providers in North Carolina.

We’ve divided this guide into five parts: first, general information about adopting in North Carolina, then sections dedicated to North Carolina domestic infant adoption (starting in Slide 6), foster adoption (Slide 19),  international adoption (Slide 29), and stepparent adoption (Slide 33). And don’t miss our slide filled with links to helpful North Carolina adoption resources (Slide 36)
