Miami Gardens Adoption Agencies: Finding the Agency That’s Best for You
Finding the best Miami Gardens adoption agency for your specific situation is one of the most important steps in the adoption process. Since the agency you choose will impact your overall outcome and experience, it is key to research your options thoroughly before making any decisions.
As one of the largest national, full-service adoption agencies in the United States, American Adoptions has just about everything you need in one place. Why can prospective birth parents and hopeful adoptive couples in Florida expect the best possible adoption experience with our agency?
We are a team made up of adoptive families, birth parents and adoptees. We believe in adoption — which means we believe in you, and we truly understand the journey you are on.
Because we work across the country (rather than being restricted to one state or ZIP code) we give prospective birth mothers hundreds of potential adoptive families to consider. This results in better matches, which creates more confidence and better adoptions.

And these are just a few of our services. Because we’re licensed in Florida, we can work with you through each and every step, meaning you won’t need to worry about finding multiple professionals.

Birth Mothers: Choosing a Miami Gardens Hospital
For both a birth mother and the adoptive family, the hospital stay is one of the most emotional, exciting and nerve-wracking moments of an adoption. Having a plan in place is important to help eliminate any confusion or added stress.
As the birth mother, when you work with American Adoptions you will always be in control of the decisions that go into creating your own hospital plan. With the help of an adoption professional, you will decide how you would prefer your hospital stay to look like. You will plan out specific details from who you would like in the delivery room, or how much alone time you would like with your baby, to the hospital where your delivery will take place. Every step of your hospital stay will be planned out for your Miami Gardens adoption.
Having a hospital plan in place will allow you to focus on your delivery and not stress the details, as everyone involved will be informed of your plan. If you have any questions about the hospital stay, or any portion of the adoption process, you can always get more information online.
