What Does an Adoption Specialist Do?

Choosing adoption is a big decision. It doesn’t matter if you are looking to be the adoptive family, or if you are the birth family. Both parties have a lot to consider when they choose adoption. The support of loved ones is extremely important and necessary. Also important is the support of an adoption specialist.

An adoption specialist’s role is vast. They are educators, counselors, and advocates for both birth families and adoptive families.

National Foster Care Month: Looking Back at Our Roots

Each May, National Foster Care Month serves to raise awareness of the facts to encourage families to explore foster care and foster-to-adopt programs. During the month of May (and every other month of the year) we ask for your help in promoting these programs and celebrating the amazing foster parents, volunteers, mentors, child welfare professionals and others who help children in foster care find permanent homes and connections.

For American Adoptions, our connections to foster care run deep. So, to help celebrate National Foster Care Month, we’re sharing the story of how one family’s commitment to foster care grew into a passion for building loving families.
