If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy and wish to make an adoption plan for your child, you have many options when choosing a Florida adoption entity to help guide you along the way. One of the first decisions you will need to make when choosing an entity is whether you would like to work with a national agency or a Florida adoption agency or attorney. There are certainly wonderful adoption entities in each category and you can decide which type best suits your needs, as each offers its own advantages and disadvantages.
Local adoption entities are often smaller and offer a more personalized approach to adoption because they have local offices, local employees, and serve fewer birth parents at one time. The staff at these agencies can make sure that your adoption plan is designed to meet your individual needs. Like national agencies, local agencies can match birth mothers with waiting adoptive families in Florida as well as out of state families.
National agencies are often much larger than local entities and generally are working with more birth mothers at one time. They may not have full-time employees or an office in your state, they may not have part time employees in your state. They may not even be able to complete an adoption in your state, and may need to bring in another agency or attorney to assist.
While the legal process of adoption varies from state to state, the overall process is similar no matter where you are in the country. It is important that you choose to work with an adoption entity that listens to your hopes for your child’s future and works hard to meet your needs before, during, and after the birth of your baby.
