Something Different - November 2019

Public Adoption

  • Wait time: can happen immediately, depending on the situation
  • A state-funded system
  • Seeks to ultimately reunite children with their biological families
  • Usually involves children of varying age ranges

Private Adoption:

  • Wait time: 1-12 months, on average
  • More expenses involved
  • Birth parents usually place their child for adoption voluntarily
  • Usually involves infants and newborns

The most important thing is knowing that no matter what type of adoption you choose to pursue, a child awaits the love your family has to offer!
