Fresno Adoption Agencies, Attorneys and More
Researching adoption in Fresno can be difficult; there aren’t many resources dedicated specifically to adoption in the city.

To that end, we’ve compiled a list of Fresno adoption resources to help you in your quest for adoption information.
Fresno Adoption Agencies
As an adoption agency ourselves, we’re pretty partial to the services we offer at American Adoptions. We do everything from counseling pregnant women to helping birth parents and adoptive parents work on their relationships for years after adoption. In fact, because we are a national, full-service agency, our size and scope allows us to offer a number of beneficial services you won't find at many smaller, regional agencies, including:
- Free, 24/7 support and counseling for women facing an unplanned pregnancy
- A financial risk-sharing program to protect adoptive families in the event of an adoption disruption
- Unique video profiles to better showcase adoptive families' personalities and help prospective birth mothers find the perfect parents for their babies
- Nationwide advertising of our adoptive families, leading to lower wait times
- Financial support for prospective birth mothers and scholarship opportunities
- Ongoing post-placement support to help you navigate life after adoption
- And more
And, when you work with American Adoptions for your Fresno adoption, you can take advantage of all of these services without sacrificing the local convenience and expertise of a smaller, regional professional. That's because, while we are a large, national agency, we have strong ties to California, with offices located right here in Fresno:
