How Do You Choose the Right Adoption Agency or Attorney? Original Video | Adoptive Parent Voices

Denalee Chapman August 19, 2015

First time adoptive parents will benefit greatly from watching this panel discussion regarding adoption professionals. They answer: What characteristics should a professional possess? Beyond knowing the adoption process, what else should an adoption professional be able to offer?

Searching for a caseworker could involve asking specific questions that go beyond the “how to adopt” and delve into personalities. Finding an adoption professional who is caring, as an individual, and works to understand all members of the adoption triad, will lead to a comfortable professional relationship. It is important to find a caseworker who is not afraid to take the time required to understand you, your needs, your concerns, and your personal adoption circumstance.
