Tennessee Adoption Guide

Everything you need to know about adopting in Tennessee.

Rachel Skousen October 31, 2017

Welcome, Tennesseeans! 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 Tennessee.

We’ve divided this guide into five parts: general information about adopting in Tennessee, then sections dedicated to domestic infant adoption (starting in slide 5), foster adoption (slide 16),  international adoption (slide 24), and stepparent adoption (slide 28). And don’t miss our slide filled with links to helpful adoption resources (slide 30).

Please note: Although care has been taken to ensure the accuracy, completeness, and reliability of the information provided in this slideshow guide, you should not rely on it to make decisions.  Instead, you should rely on licensed professionals in making decisions relative to adoption.  The information in this guide is subject to change without notice. Adoption.com is not responsible for the consequences of relying on this information. In no event shall Adoption.com be liable for any direct, indirect, special, or incidental damage resulting from, arising out of, or in connection with the use of this information.
