Massachusetts Adoption Process

Adoption is an incredible way to grow a family. It is a path taken with great compassion, consideration, hope, and strength. When you make the choice to adopt, you are making the choice to provide safety, stability, and love for a child. You are choosing to open your stable home, to become a forever family, and to fulfill your
dream of becoming a parent.

The adoption process, as exciting and joyous as it may be, can also feel intimidating for prospective adoptive parents. You may have heard about all the legal, financial, and emotional preparations that adoption entails. If you have experienced infertility, you may be feeling especially overwhelmed about starting the adoption process. We understand what you are going through, and want you to know that you do not have to go through this process alone.
