ESTIMATED WAIT TIME
Birthparents select the adoptive family; time on the wait list will vary. There is no set timeframe associated with this program. There are estimated wait times based on the ethnicity and gender preferences of the families. Families who are open to both ethnicity and gender generally have shorter wait times.
OPEN VS. CLOSED ADOPTIONS
Each family must decide on what is right for them, as do the birthparents. History has taught us that a semi-open adoption works well for all parties. This includes pictures and letters exchanged for a set number of years through the agency. This allows a comfortable adjustment period for both adoptive and birthparents.
