Welcome, prospective adoptive parents! This guide was written to provide you with a single place to find information about adoption in Maine. It will walk you through everything from laws that will impact your adoption to reviews of adoption service providers in Maine.

We’ve divided this guide into five parts: first, general information about adopting in Maine, then sections dedicated to domestic infant adoption (starting in Slide 6) foster adoption (Slide 19),  international adoption (Slide 28), and stepparent adoption (Slide 32). And don’t miss our slide filled with links to helpful adoption resources (Slide 35).
