Deciding to adopt a child is the first step in adding a new member to your family. The second step is deciding how to go about the adopting process.
When beginning the process of adopting a child, many people turn first to agencies. These agencies can help facilitate the adoption process and assist clients in reaching their end goal–adding a new member to the family. Prospective parents may pursue adoption through a private agency or through a public agency, also sometimes known as the foster care system.
Many individuals turn to family lawyer Stephen Bardol of Bardol Law Firm, LLC, with their questions about agencies and the process in general.
