Adoption Agency Certifications
Anyone looking into adoption should only work with a qualified licensed adoption agency. This ensures the adoption's safety and provides you with a method to check the agency's status. Below is a list of states where American Adoptions holds a certification or license to provide adoption services. We encourage you to contact our licensing authorities (or the licensing authorities of other agencies you may be considering) to confirm that the agency licenses are in good standing.
I don't see my state listed here. Can American Adoptions still work with me?
Yes. American Adoptions is a national adoption agency that works with pregnant women considering adoption and families looking to adopt across the U.S. While we help place children nationwide, we are also licensed in the states listed below to provide additional adoption services, including home studies for adoptive families.
