Types of Adoption

Whether you’re looking to adopt a child or to create an adoption plan for your child, knowing and understanding the types of adoption should help you make your decision. The different adoption types can vary in costs, wait times, and reliability, making it extremely important for you to know the finer details of each option. Domestic Private Adoption, Foster Care Adoption, and International Adoption are the main adoption types, but these are just the beginning of the options. You will also need the help of an adoption agency, facilitator or lawyer/law center. Adoption Network offers descriptions for each of these options so you can be fully informed.
